My friend, Shannon Cash, just forwarded me the following information on volunteering at the
Marathon of the Palm Beaches which takes place on Sunday, December 7th, 2008. Shannon,
and my husband Rob, have both signed up to volunteer at this event, as part of the Bike Patrol.
They will be sweeping the course to see if any runners need assistance during the marathon.
I will be running in my very first half marathon at this event, as a training run for the Disney
Marathon, as part of the Palm Beach Team in Training marathon team. Team in Training is
the main fundraising program for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
