Those in whose honor I run #5 — more about Doug

March 14, 2007 at 6:10 am | Posted in Doug Booth, honoree, Reasons why I run, TNT | Leave a comment

I introduced Doug a while back, but had great news about him today. Two things —

1) He leaves tomorrow for Rome. Lucky him… He’s attending the Rome Marathon as a honoree/cheerleader/supporter for the TNT marathon training team he has been working with. And, spending a couple of weeks there.

2) Much, much more importantly, he had his most recent testing and found out he’s still disease free.

Doug has a chronic form of lymphoma. Living with a chronic disease in remission is tough, so to have another report that everything is free and clear…. that’s so terrific.

Here’s a link to his bio, for more info. It’s a great story.

And Doug deserves it. He is a tireless volunteer/honoree for TNT. Since he has retired, his whole life is attending TNT events, and being an incredible inspiration for those who don’t have a connection. He’s doing something for TNT almost every day, every weekend, every training session for several TNT teams at a time. So many people have been inspired to excel and achieve because of him.

Enjoy Rome, Doug! Looking forward to pictures.
