Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page! I hope you'll visit often and pass the link on to your friends, families, and co-workers.
After raising funds for and participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer during my tenure in DC, I decided I needed a different kind of challenge. After receiving a Team In Training postcard in a 5K goody bag, I decided to take the plunge and train for my first triathlon! So far, I've already stretched myself farther than I ever thought I could, and it's all in an effort to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.
On July 12, I will participate in the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon, an Olympic-distance event that includes a 1.5K open-water swim, a 42K cycle, and a 10K run. Your donations are tex-deductible and, of course, VERY much appreciated by me and by the heroes who are battling with blood cancers each and every day.
Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!
