Racing to Save Lives

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I'm thrilled to be training to participate in the City of Trees Marathon event in Boise, Idaho this October, as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives, as well as hoping to make a difference in the fight against cancer. We have all been connected in some way to individuals who have battled cancer. These connections make this fight something we should all be a part of. I am completing this event 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 100 people will give just $50, I will reach my goals and we can all have an impact.

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

We are running five miles this weekend. I am excited. :) 6/11/09

Just finished the five miler and am soaking my feet. I have some blisters and will be investing in an interval watch and some new shoes this week. :) 6/13/09

I have a Pampered Chef fundraising party scheduled for July 22nd @ 6:30 pm at my house. If you can make it, give me a call, if not, I will bring the catalog by so you can order from it or you can order online ( hostess name is Shelli Bunn-Petterson and the party is open until July 31st). The proceeds from the party will be going to LLS. :) It's a great way to stock up on your kitchen supplies and give money to a great cause. We are running six miles this Saturday. 6/17/09

I ran seven miles today. Yeah! I sent out my fundraising letters and am hopeful that the money will start to come in. I am in the process of setting up another fundraising event for late July and/or early August. Keep checking back for updates. 6/27/09

My mother just pointed out that I didn't put who to make out the check to and what the tax ID # is for the society. Organization: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (checks can be payable to LLS) Federal Tax ID: 13-5644916 Donation Made Through: Shelli Bunn-Petterson If there is any other information that you need, please let me know. For online donations, they will email you a donation receipt. Thanks for your support of a great cause. :) 6/29/09

Hey all, the fundraising event is set. Come join me on August 11th @ Liquid in BODO for a night of fun. We will have a featured drink (all sales of that drink will go to LLS) and a silent auction. Evites will be sent soon and we will be posting flyers with more details. I hope to see you there, it is a great way to have fun and make a difference. 7/13/09

I did a little over seven miles tonight. :) We have ten miles on Saturday morning and I have a bit of angst. It has been pretty warm out. 7/16/09

I did the ten miles. Now I am having tea and debating between a nap or shaved ice. It is a scorcher. 7/18/09

LLS Fundraiser is set. Come join us at Liquid in BODO on August 11th @ 8pm for a night of cool music (Tarriii out of New York), drinks, auction/raffle items, and fun with friends. Bring everyone you know. :)

I run 12 miles tomorrow (8/2) because I was at my Lasik post op. this morning. Yipee! 8/2/09

Ran by myself tonight and got sweat in my fresh from lasik eyes... not fun. :( I made over a hundred dollars for LLS at the Pampered Chef party. WooHoo! If you missed your chance to order, my friends are doing a benefit Pampered Chef party as well. Go to the same website listed above but instead of entering my name as the hostess, enter Anna Lee. Come on, buy some stuff. The products are awesome and they are giving 25% of sales to LLS. It's a 45 minute run tomorrow. I am armed with a better sweat band and some vasaline (don't ask) and hope it goes well. 8/2/09

I ran 7 miles on Saturday. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I want to get a couple of good hill runs in over the next few weeks. :) Our fundraiser is on Tuesday night @ 8 pm and I am really excited. So far I have commitments for $1100 but I have only received $595. Steen is incredibly stressed about the recommitment, but I am convinced that we can do it. I hope to see you at Liquid for the fundraiser on Tuesday. 8/9/09
