Racing to Save Lives



Welcome to my Team In Training home page.



I have signed up to train for and run in the San Antonio Rock and Roll Marathon in November of 2008. But I am not running or training alone. Both my husband, Steve, and I have joined

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. All of us involved with Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. Specifically, I am running in honor of 3 people who have been very important in my life - Lindsay; Barb and David. We also have a local 'hero' who our team is running in honor of. You see me pictured with him at a recent team meeting. This is 6-year old Jared who is currently in remission from AML Leukemia, having been diagnosed in August of 2007. I know that the pain that I wil experience training for and running in the marathon is nothing compared to what Jared as been through in the past 8 months. (If you'd like, you can read more about our experience on my blog. )





Would you consider making a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission? It's easy to do by just clicking the 'Make A Donation' button. (For every $25.00 donated, you will get your name put into the drawing for a variety of prizes that you can see here. )





I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!
