This is the 14th Maryland Half Marathon - and it'll be the 14th that I've run. The work done by nurses and techs, researchers and doctors, counselors and scientists never stops -- so we can't either. Not even for a pandemic, although obviously this year's race will be virtual again.
All of us have had people in our lives who've been affected by cancer - and all of those people will be in my heart when I lace up my shoes and head out. Maggie, Deborah, Lauren, Debbie, Nancy, Deb, Dave, people I've known and people I never knew - they all fought hard and they never quit. Neither will I.
