RUN WITH KRISTEN: FIGHT OVARIAN CANCER


Hello Internet! In a little less than two months I’ll be running the Brooklyn Half Marathon, and for the first time I’ll be running for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund in honor of my recently deceased sister, Kristen Waller. I’m not the sort to pester anyone repeatedly so this will be one of two times I mention it, but please donate if you can and help end this shitty, awful disease. Thanks!

“He manages like somebody carrying a box that is too heavy, first with his arms underneath. When their strength gives out, he moves the hands forward, hooking them on the corners, pulling the weight against his chest. He moves his thumbs slightly when the fingers begin to tire, and it makes different muscles take over. Afterward, he carries it on his shoulder, until the blood drains out of the arm which is stretched up to steady the box and the arm goes numb. But now the man can hold underneath again, so that he can go on without ever putting the box down.”
