I've decided to name the Team Single Step from the quote "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" by Confucius. The name seems applicable to distance running as well the long and difficult journey of cancer treatment.
From 2007 to 2009, I worked with runners from around the country to raise over $12,000 for the Lupus Foundation of America. Then I took a break. In 2010, my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer so I restarted this blog to raise money for the American Cancer Society at a 2011 Relay for Life event. Right now I'm just running. No particular goal or training plan, just putting in the miles when I can and putting in the occasional blog post when I can.

I'd like to give a special thanks to Alyn for her very generous donation that takes us up to our goal of $5,000. Thank you very much!
