"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you too, can become great." Mark Twain.

I am overwhelmed by all the encouragement and kindness that I have received about starting this silly running thing for Shelby and Lymphoma research. I am surrounded by "really great ones!" Thank you.

You are a great one too. That's why we all cheer for you.

I have to say I started running again. I've run 2 half marathons and a full marathon in the past, but I've quit running for the past couple years. I decided I wanted to get back to it. So as I was running up this hill the other day, ready to die, I remembered your story of running just one light pole, then upping it to 2 light poles. I decided if you could do that I could run to the stop sign at the top of the hill. And I did! It felt great. Just so you know, you were my inspiration that day. Keep running!

yeah, like 24 comments? that's a new PR for you... and me. You cannot fail, my friendly friend. Too many people are cheering you on. Too many people with go by your house shaking their fists if you do.

This is fun to watch. You're amazing.
