I did Tough Mudder last year.  You know what’s even tougher than “probably the toughest event on earth”?  Cancer.  One site reports, “[a]n estimated 1,012,533 people in the United States are living with, or are in remission from, leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma or myeloma. Approximately every four minutes, someone new is diagnosed with blood cancer. Approximately every 10 minutes, someone dies”.  Therefore, I’m taking a break from sports and endurance events in this post to bring attention to this cause and the general badassity of the people who are dedicated to finding a cure.

This spring, I’m proud to be a part of my friend Krista’s campaign for LLS Woman of the Year!  I am trying to include as many active events as possible, such as our “quasi-tri” Bike.Run.BBQ.  I am also taking individual donations for the campaign for the races I run within the 10-week campaign timeline.  

In the meantime, please please please take the time out to “like” Live.Love.Starr, the campaign Facebook page, and follow us on twitter @livelovestarr.  The campaign name was chosen because on of Krista’s honorees is Starr Spangler, a close friend of ours who was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2010.  

Love the life you live.  LIVE.LOVE.STARR.
