I have an unusually active bunch of friends. If it's Summer or Fall we're cycling, swimming, kayaking, mountain biking or climbing...Winter, we're snowboarding and skiing...
Thu has had orthoscopic surgery on both knees (hockey), Jen has a couple of marathons under her belt and some of us have a few triathlons to our credit.
I'm not exactly feeling very athletic as I'm in the midst of sipping on an iced mocha right about now, so I've chosen to let you know a little something about my friend Nishat. She will be next to put a marathon under her belt while raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society this September.
So far she's logged more than 300 miles all around the Bay Area (NoCal), consumed 100 gallons of gatorade, chowed on 20 lbs of pasta (angel hair only of course ;-)), and used 50 lbs of ice for her sore muscles...all in the name of raising at least $3,700 for leukemia and lymphoma research.
WANT TO CONTRIBUTE?
If you're interested in helping Nishat meet or exceed her goal, please feel free to contact her directly. She's a great person, pursing a difficult first time marathon to raise money for those who are looking for a cure. You're invited to donate as little as $1/mile!
All donations are 100% tax-deductible. For more info please visit her training page.
