Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page!
I am training to run a marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I'm completing this marathon in honor of my grandmother and all of those who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance the Society's mission.
This week has been so hot and humid it felt like running through pea soup! This Saturday we ran 8 miles and my knees were in some serious pain at the end. 26.2 is going to be tough! :) Luckily they felt a lot better pretty quickly and I am back at it. I 'm still staying focused on the reason for running which has helped me deal a little better with the discomfort. I want to thank everyone who has helped me so far, we're getting closer!
Check back to see how its going! I'll try to keep you all updated as much as possble between writting my thesis and doing my internship. :) I am getting closer on my writting, I'm pretty much down to the discussion! I am going to have to set a defense date soon, kinda scarey! :)
Thank you so much for your support!
