Tammie's Race for a Cause
Saving Lives One Mile at a Time
Welcome to my Team In Training home page.
I am training to participate in an endurance event as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. It is a half iron man triathlon scheduled to be held in Sun River, Oregon this June. This event will entail a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike ride and a 13.2 mile run.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is dedicated to funding blood cancer research and provides education and services to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, All of us who are involved with Team in Training are raising funds to support this effort.
I'm completing this event in honor of all individuals 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.
I hope you'll visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!
I have just completed 4 weeks of training. I am running about 7 miles and biking right around 30 miles. Swimming is still a challenge for me. Working on breathing technique and body position. For those of you who know my swimming capabilities, I no longer sink.
P.S. Tony you Rock!!!
