Wow…

All I can say is WOW! Marathon weekend was amazing. I’m nearly 100% recovered, just some residual foot pain, but it’s all good! Thanks for all your support, both financially by contributing to the American Cancer Society and those who cheered me on, whether it from the sidelines or virtually via Facebook, Twitter, etc. You guys are ROCK STARS! Here are a few pictures in case you missed them on Facebook and Twitter: Soooo, what should my next adventure be?   🙂

This is for you, Penny

We’re getting closer to the big race. Just over a couple of weeks, so it’s “taper-time.” This is the period of training that’s pretty difficult for me. It’s where I have to back off on the miles I’m logging. Rest up a little, while still doing some running, so I’m fresh and ready to bang out twenty-six miles. 26.2 miles for YOU! This post is for my Mum. Technically she’s my step-mom, but she’s from England, so I like to say Mum. It’s just fun. She’s ran twenty marathons in her life. Climbed quite a few mountains, too. Kind of[…]

This is for you, Linda

Cancer hits so many people. Most of you reading this have had a close encounter with it, either personally or through friends/family. It’s a nasty disease that took my sweet mother-in-law almost two years ago. It was a fast progression once diagnosed. Once my MIL was diagnosed, my eyes were opened to so many people dealing with this terrible disease. So, while I’m training for an endurance event and raising money (CLICK HERE to donate) I am lifting up people each week. To see the previous weeks, click here and here. Today I’m mentioning a friend’s mother. Now, I don’t[…]

This is for you, Frank #CancerSucks

Hey, my friends. As you know, a portion of my book proceeds goes to The American Cancer Society. And…you may or may not know this, but my husband and I have the Arizona Pain Train fundraising going on, too. Yep. We even have a FB page (CLICK HERE to check it out). The AZ Pain Train is where we participate in endurance events and raise money at the same time. Hence the name AZ Pain Train! LOL.  The first event was us riding our bikes across Iowa for Ragbrai back in July of 2012. You guys helped us raise over[…]

#CancerSucks-let’s do something about it

Hey, everyone. First, I want to say thank you for your support of my cancer cause. Every Lynn Rush book you buy and your friends buy a portion gets donated to the American Cancer Society. And now…we’re starting up the AZ Pain Train event. July of 2012 we biked across Iowa at the Ragbrai. Cycled over 400 miles in five days. It was brutal but amazing. AND, we raised over $3,000.00! Well, our next endurance event is the marathon! Yep. I’m training for my first marathon and while I’m able to be out there getting healthy, running, working toward a[…]

#CancerUpdate

Time for another update. For those of you who are new to the site/my work, I donate a portion of my book sales to the American Cancer Society. As to why, my mother-in-law passed away from bile duct cancer. She was an amazing woman, and her name was Lynn. Yes, same as mine!! That’s because I picked hers to be my pen name. She was an awesome writer (unpublished) and read my very first novel–and it was seriously lacking. Somehow she found the positives and encouraged me to jump into this crazy-awesome world of writing/publishing. So now, every book of[…]
