Depression Marathon Blog

My photo
Diagnosed with depression 17 years ago, I lost the life I once knew, but in the process re-created a better me. I am alive and functional today because of my dog, my treatment team, my sobriety, and my willingness to re-create myself within the confines of this illness. I hate the illness, but I'm grateful for the person I've become and the opportunities I've seized because of it. I hope writing a depression blog will reduce stigma and improve the understanding and treatment of people with mental illness. All original content copyright to me: etta. Enjoy your visit!

and the training begins...

Found 16 cents during my easy 3-miler today on my first official day of the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon Training Program. Check out the Found Money File in the right sidebar of this blog. I've decided to keep track of all the cash and coins I find this year while running (or walking for exercise). At the end of the year, I'll donate the proceeds to my local National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) organization. If any of my readers know how I can make this an interactive project--a place where you guys could input your found money, too--please let me know. Might be kind of fun!
