7/13 - Erica my Hero

7/13 - Erica my Hero, originally uploaded by suzbucket.

Last night I attended a Team in Training Information Meeting for the new Winter Season. It's always fun to go and talk about my experience and hopefully inspire someone to join. Last night I had the honor of attending a meeting with my friend Erica (the one in the purple shirt). When I first meet Erica we were in the same pace group and me being me I chatted the whole time while she just smiled and kept pretty quiet. I just smiled and laughed.

Fast forward to now, Erica is the life of the party. She is now our new season's team captain. She attends meetings and talks about her connection to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She was barely a freshman in High School when she was diagnosed with Lymphoma. She has now been in remission for 10 years and is one of the most amazing people I have ever met.

It's because of people like her I continue to do this. I don't get paid to do this, I do it because I love it.
