My First Mini

Some things never go out of style: the little black dress, a sharp blazer, and giving.

This weekend, the rain came down, but then the sun came out. And on Saturday morning, a team of colleagues and I ran the women-only Oakley New York Mini 10K alongside more than 5,500 women in Central Park. Through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training (TNT), our team raised funds to help find cures and more effective treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma.

As you know, every activity requires sartorial consideration!

KicksOn race day, we donned TNT’s trademark purple and colorful kicks.

but she’s a pro and personalized her singlet!

This was my first real road race, and it turned out to be not only inspiring but also a great exercise in setting a goal, training with (some) discipline, and having fun. The generosity and support of family and friends have been energizing and greatly appreciated. Here’s to the power of women!
