"I love to run, but training for and running the Chicago Half Marathon with Team LYDIA was a special experience. I trained and ran with purpose, knowing that my rising early and hitting the pavement would make a real difference in people's lives. Running with Team LYDIA wonderfully reminded me that there are people in need, and that my putting one foot in front of the other can be part of meeting some of those needs." -Vanya Koo, Team LYDIA Runner 2010
