3 Good Reasons we have been MIA

Yes, we have been missing from the Myeloma blog-o-sphere. There are three good reasons why we have been hanging low more lateley (see pic below).  The good news is that it is not because of lack of good health. My M-spike finally bottomed out in April.  The last six months have been a whirl wind and we now feel strong enough to continue the push to put an end to Multiple Myeloma, not only personally, but for all of those we have grown to know and love in the MM community.

To get things jazzed up again, I made the mistake of asking a buddy if he would be foolish enough to run a half marathon with me. I have been struggling to maintain motivation to exercise, although I realize it's one of the best things for my body and probably one of the biggest contributing factors to me dominating Myeloma longterm.  He accepted the challenge and the rest is history.

So today I signed up for the Chicago half marathon and we are inviting others to run with us (there's also a 5k!) We already have six commited souls and the more the merrier. A couple of folks that will be running took on the responsibility of being the fund raising champions to grow the DomiNation to spur on more awareness and research dollars aimed at ending Myeloma. All in all, this is going to be a blast. #doMMinate with us!!!

Want to join us in Chicago...then go here!

Welcome back to the blog-o-sphere,you have been missed. Ocean, Iris and Ruby have grown so much and are just beautiful. Certainly spending your time with your family beats blogging any day. Congratulations on your bottomed out M-spike and best wishes in your marathon training.

Wonderful news all around! May God bless you all, and may you run so that you may obtain the prize.

Good luck to you! I'm running the Kansas City half marathon in October!

Welcome back!! Best of luck with your training and we will be following your DomiNation!

We're glad to hear that all is going so well and your three 'reasons' are impressive and look very well-adjusted and happy, so it was well-invested time.

Intending that the numbers continue to improve and that your training is going well and that the event is all that you want and need it to be. There are probably a lot more MM supporters in your area than you realize, so getting some media coverage will help fill the pot, I feel sure. Good Luck!
