I'm racing to save lives...

Thanks for visiting my Team In Training fundraising page!

I'm training to participate in the Nike Women's Marathon this Fall as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training program (TNT)! I completed my first half-marathon in March with TNT - and now I'm back! I'm on a mission again to raise more money to support those fighting blood cancers.

Last season, I raced in honor of Eve, one of my dearest friends -- I've known her since I was 6 years old. She was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma last Septmeber and is proudly kicking cancer in the pants! Here's a picture of us at the ING finish line looking triumphant!

So, let's triumph over cancer and stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. Thanks for your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress and you can even follow along on my training blog.

Thanks for your support!
