Running for Dori

My Nashville friend, Jim Brown, started a new blog today. He’s been preparing for a half-marathon in Virginia Beach on September 2 and his blog will follow his training journey. His blog will also be following another journey. Last Tuesday, June 19, Jim’s wife, Dori was diagnosed with leukemia. She’s now receiving chemo-therapy at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Jim is keeping their friends and family up to date using the wonderful blog-like service called “CaringBridge.org”. Jim — who doesn’t believe in coincidences — had already received a solicitation to use his preparation for the half-marathon to participate in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Team in Training program. His training now has new and significant meaning. His new blog, called “Run for Dori,” is now more than a training blog.
