Introducing David Haas- Guest Blogger

One of the things I love about running is that those participating are usually helping themselves become physically fit, and they are also sometimes supporting various foundations.  Everything from cancer, leukemia, alzheimer's, and more are supported in different events.  Some runners even go above and beyond by raising even more money for these great causes while training for various races.

Not only are we, the runners, supporting these great foundations physically, but through the networks of blogs and running sites, we're also talking about them.  Talking and learning about these different ailments and foundations can almost do just as much help as physically supporting them.

On that note, I would like to introduce my first ever guest blogger, David Haas.  We recently started talking and he has written an article (and possibly more) about how staying physically fit can help those going through cancer treatments, in remission, or family and friends of cancer patients; and the benefits of support networks.

David's bio from the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog is as follows:

Joining the organization in 2011, David Haas is a cancer support group and awareness program advocate at the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance. In addition to researching the many valuable programs available to our site’s visitors, David often blogs about programs and campaigns underway at the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance, as well as creative fitness ideas for those dealing with cancer, while creating relationships with similar organizations.

I have also posted the first article that David has written for me to share.  It's an informative article on the benefits of Tai Chi.  As David said in one of his emails to me "Each different cancer has its limitations, but if one can keep a healthy body, they can have a better chance to overcome this awful disease."
