Racing to Save Lives
THANK YOU to everyone who helped me reach my goal!!! I raised $1,700 over a month earlier than I needed to- and I have all my friends and family to thank for it! You guys all did a great thing in giving up a little bit of comfort to come to the aid of others. Give yourselves a pat on the back ;)
Now, if you find yourself bored on Saturday, October 17th, then come on down to Columbus and watch me and looooooots of other people run 26.2 miles early Sunday morning, October 18th!
Welcome to Angela's Team In Training home page!
I'm training to run the Columbus Marathon on 10/18/2009 as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. Every TNT member raises funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I will finish 26.2 miles not for my own glory but 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 LLS's mission! If you do, I will bake you cookies of your choice. Or maybe just give you a hug.
I hope you will visit my web site every week day and twice-a-day on the weekends. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. I'll also be posting about my training on my blog. Thanks for your support!
About 6 weeks til race day!
Hal Higdon's Novice II marathon training schedule has been treating my very well so far- I just did my longest run on Sunday, August 30th- 18 miles, and with only one water stop!
The Monday after that monster run, I got all four wisdom teeth removed :( Although recovery hasn't been pleasant, I hope to keep up with my schedule. I ran 8 miles today, and am due for a nice short weekend run of 13 miles next!
Obviously since I've reached my goal, I don't have a plethora of fundraisers to attend to anymore.
I apologize to those who were waiting for the Max & Erma's night- they never contacted me!
I still have my Etsy site up at http://limelicious.etsy.com and earrings and purses are still for sale. Though I would love to make custom purses- from which the proceeds would, of course, go to Team in Training- I'm pretty swamped with graduate school applications right now. Maybe around Thanksgiving or Christmas I'll pick it up again!
And, as always, you can still donate on this page :)
