Running 26.2 miles is hard. Cancer is harder.

To quote my friend, coach and mentor Katye, "I run because I can, for those who can't, but some day will."

I enjoy runnng and am extremely fortunate that I am able to do so. After running several races, I decided it was time to run for a cause. I could enjoy my passion AND help people.

Enter Team in Traning and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. At the urging of my friend, I joined Team in Training and I have committed to raising $3,500.00 (with a personal goal to hit $4,000), with each dollar and every step working towards finding a cure for blood cancers. On January 8th, 2011, I will take the steps towards completeing 26.2 miles and my very first marthon. I will be running for all those who can't, but would love to be able to. I will cross the finish line for myself, my honored team mates, cancer patients across the board, and ultimately, a cure!

Since 1988, TNT's 420,000+ members have raised $1 Billion. Please make a donation to join my team help advance LLS's mission and be the part of something greater!

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

    "Thank you for supporting this cause. My 13 yr old nephew Bryce has non-Hodgkins lymphoblastic lymphoma. He finished treatment in May 2010, but a PET scan one week ago today found he has replapsed. He is at Children's Hospital in Iowa City and undergoing chemo preparing for a bone marrow transplant."
