Run for the Tatas

Recently, my dear friend Lynsey's mother was diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine mammogram. It's always difficult to see your friends go through something like this, but Betty is truly a second mother to me. In high school I lived with them for several weeks (or months) at a time. She introduces me to people as her other daughter (only to receive very confused looks:). Betty is one of the strongest women I know; therefore, I have no doubt that she will beat this. 

There is never a fitting time to be diagnosed with breast cancer, but if it's going to happen, then October (National Breast Cancer Awareness Month) seems to be a perfectly good time. In the past, I've run races without regard for the cause. Yesterday was different. I completed Run for the Tatas in Wilmington in Betty's honor. It pushed me to run faster and dig deeper. And in your honor, I ran my new stroller PR (23:15)!

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you Betty as you navigate this difficult journey to regaining your health. In addition to being one of the strongest women I know, you're also one of the most stubborn. Cancer's got nothing on you!

Love you!


  1. Congratulations on the new stroller PR! You're kicking some major tail in running! And thank you for the sweet post. I will make sure mom sees it. She loves you like you are her daughter.

    Cool shirt for the race!

  2. Great job! I think Betty's strength is beyond measure and such a wonderful woman to honor with your new PR!
