James is an old friend from my high school days whom I lost touch with for a decade (or two). I found him again last year through LinkedIn, and was thrilled to chat with him and catch up on our lives. I found out that he's become quite the runner, and just finished his first NYC marathon. He's participating in a racing series next year that will consist of 8 marathons and 6 half-marathons over 2010. Impressive!
James is part of the Team in Training program, which raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I've supported this organization over the years as friends and acquaintances have participated in some of their events. I encourage you to take a look at James's website and consider contributing. Remember, it's tax deductible, and it's for a great cause!
Good luck James!
