Racing to Save Lives


Welcome to my Team In Training home page!

How does a wife & mother of twins find a cure for cancer (especially when she's a lawyer)? By training to participate in a triathlon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training!


I am raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma, myeloma and other cancers from taking more lives. I am doing this in memory of my close childhood friend who died in December of 2008 at the age of 33, after a 2 1/2 year battle with sarcoma. I am also doing this in honor of everyone battling blood cancers or other forms of 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 LLS's mission.


I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress! Also, be sure to visit my training blog: http://2gothedistance.blogspot.com/ for updates on my triathlon adventures!


Thanks for your support!
