Rachel's Dublin Marathon Fundraising Page

Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to Ms. Rachel's Team In Training home page.
I'm training to participate in the Adidas Dublin Marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. That's right, Dublin. Home of Yeats, Bono and Guinness— two fans of a run-on and a runner's aid. ;-)
Team In Training raises funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. Last year I ran the Big Lake Half Marathon to raise funds for the cause and the experience was so rewarding I had to up the stakes a bit. So here we go— twice the distance, twice the monetary goal (and one big ol' ocean to cross).
These challenges are amazing— I learn a lot about myself and my limitations, but the best part is really making a difference by raising money to find a cure for blood cancers. Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.
I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress, ramblings, and musings on motivational music for those long weekday morning runs! Thanks so much for your support!
