Welcome to Erin and Tracy's Team In Training home page.Racing to Save Lives!
Race InformationMy sister and I are training to participate in the Walt Disney World Marathon and Half Marathon as members of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. We are asking for your help in supporting my run through the form of donations. We would love for this ---------------------------------------> (the picture you see there) to be us (Erin and Tracy)!! ;o)
Team In TrainingAll of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. We are completing the marathon and Half Marathon 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!
What do we get out of it? Well besides getting in shape and meeting new people, these donations help us on our journey to the finish line in the form of coaching, plane tickets, and hotel costs. The rest of the money goes straight to the society (more than 75%). With this group we know we will make it across the finish line! Once we cross the finish we will not only have a running achievement, but we will also have given something back to our community with all of your help and donations.
All donations are due by December 28, 2007Please make a donation to support our participation in Team In Training and help advance the Society's mission. Any amount will help even if it is just $1, but we would love it if you could donate $20 (or more :o) ). And just remember, the more you donate, the more you help a great cause! Don't be shy ;o)
I hope you'll visit our web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see our progress. Thanks for your support!
* If you would like your donation to be annonymous (in the "Top Contributors " section on the right side of this screen) there is an option for that in the donation menu. But we would still like to thank all of you!
Training On The Way To Disney World Marathon!
Most recent long run-Last Saturday, December 1st, I ran 16 miles around Mission Bay! We started just east of Sea World, ran over the Ingrahm bridges, around the bay past the coaster, back up the boardwalk, over the Ingrahm bridges again, out to the point of Quivira Blvd point, and back up to the start point! The run was a lot like that sentance...a run on! It took me about 4 hours, but I felt great afterward!!
18 Mile Train Run Dec. 8th! We take the train from Solana Beach up to Oceanside, and then we run back to Solana Beach! It takes the train about 15 minutes to do what it will take me about 4.5 hours! I will let you know how it goes!
