Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page.
For the last two years I trained with Team in Training to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and try new things - first the 5430 Sprint race in 2006 and then the 5430 Long Course half ironman in 2007. This year I have the wonderful opportunity to be back with Team in Training, except this year I have the role of a coach! I am so excited to help others achieve personal goals and support such a great cause. Because I believe in the mission of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, I have also decided to fundraise. I will also be training to participate in the Olympic distance race - the Loveland Lake to Lake triathlon on June 28th.
The TNT team and I are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I'm completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. Last year I raced in honor of my great aunt Margie, who succumbed to the effects of multiple myeloma. Seeing her name on the wrist band I wore throughout my race really pushed me through the tough times. (Imaging swimming for about 45 minutes, then going on a 3+ hour bike ride in the middle of summer, and then deciding, when the sun was nearing its high point, to go and run 13.1 miles on an exposed dirt road.) Sound a little tough? It was, but I don't think it is at all tougher than going through cancer treatment. The ones affected by blood cancer are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
