Twins Run with Team Lemon

Leah & Malinda are identical twins but opposite runners. Malinda is the "go with the flow" slower 1/2 who prefers to tweet, instagram & run marathons (4:00:57). Leah is the BQ (3:35:36) x 2 "Garmin obsessed" faster 1/2 who prefers to run as many races as possible. :-)

Michael, Leah's brother-in-law, was diagnosed with leukemia as a child. Michael kept fighting cancer with his inspiring Irish spirit, so it was very bittersweet when he died on St. Patrick's Day, 2003.

The twins' grandmother, affectionately know as GG, was diagnosed with cancer on Friday, July 13, 2012 and died on Monday, July 16, 2012. 

In memory of Michael & GG, TWINS RUN together with Team Lemon to fight childhood cancer! Follow @TwinsRun as we prepare to run our 2nd Chicago Marathon together on October 13, 2013. 

No donation is too small to fight childhood cancer. Can you donate $2

Or, join our "Mother Runners & Others" Team and help Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation reach 1 million miles this September!

The Afghan Whigs & Our Congregation to Conquer Cancer

It has been one year since I first met two inspiring mother runners fighting cancer. Thanks to our love for The Afghan Whigs and running, our friendship has grown and our Congregation to Conquer Cancer continues. We ran the Nike Women's Half Marathon DC together and we're all training for marathons while raising money to fight cancer. This year, Anne will run the New York City Marathon with DetermiNation to support the American Cancer Society. Malinda will run the Chicago Marathon with Team Lemon to support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer

2013 Blue Cross Broad Street Run Ten Miler: Red Socks Running

From Philly to Boston with Love
Before the runners arrive
Since I PR'd at 2012 Broad Street Run (1:29), I decided that I didn't want to run this year. After my 10 mile run on Saturday, I was ready to cheer runners on Sunday! Almost 3 weeks after the Boston Marathon, it was inspiring to see red socks running!

I was very grateful for the opportunity to spectate. In case you missed it, "Standing Ovation" by Mark Remy was a powerful tribute to spectators. Mark was able to capture all of my emotions related to the Boston Marathon tragedy.

And, thanks to Team Philly and Philadelphia Runner for a great tailgate!

The Red Socks Are Running!
