Another Week of Training in the Heat!
Jun 12, 2011 by Chrissy Harlow

This week it was quite warm here in Raleigh, NC. Temperatures have been in the 90's and the humidity has been high. My training this week included a couple of lake swims, a 30 min comfortable run, a 9 mile run (which turned into a 7.5 mile run because of the heat), a mountain bike ride (which I white knuckled the whole thing...only my second time on single track), a group ride of 37 miles and a 4 mile run immediately following (it was tough because it was right in the heat of the day), some strength training, and finally an easy bike ride. So that was 8 and half hours worth of training and 71 miles! WHEW!!

Thank you to everyone who went and ate at Moe's last Wednesday. I haven't gotten the numbers back yet, but I'll let you know when I know.

I have 2 raffles going on right now. One is to win $1,000 - the drawing will take place on August 27th and tickets are 1 for $10 or 3 for $25 (Please let me know if you are interested in buying tickets). The other is a raffle to win 3 Angel of Grace Bracelets. You enter this drawing by donating to my fundraising website. For every $20 you donate online you have a chance to win (up to 100 entries). I am at 75 entries so far, so the drawing will hopefully happen soon. Who knows you may be the one to win.

My friends son (the one I am dedicating this season to) has had some hard turn of events over the last week. His counts including his red blood cell counts were all very low. He was going in for a bone marrow aspiration and biopsy to check the fluid in his marrow on Friday, and I have not heard an update yet. The good thing is that David feels good right now, so at least that is a positive. Please send your thoughts and prayers out for the Brooks family and for David!

Please take the time to make a donation to help us win the fight against leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. Together we CAN find a cure!

Next step in my endurance sports career...
Apr 24, 2011 by Chrissy Harlow

I am super excited to announce the next step in my endurance sports career, a HALF IRONMAN Triathlon. As indicated by the logo below, the race is 70.3 miles of swimming, biking, and running. With every new milestone it feels so much better to do it for the right reasons. Not the “Wow you are crazy” reason, but the “Wow what a great cause” reason!

So, I am once again working with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help wipe out Cancer. Those of you who know me well, know how much cancer has affected my life and how much I want to see the end of Cancer. I’m ready for Cancer to kick the bucket!

I have several family members that have battled the Cancer monster. Some are survivors, and some have lost their brave fight, including: three grandparents, my great uncle, my aunt, and my cousin. Most importantly, my Mom continues her fight against Multiple Myeloma. I have numerous friends who have had to deal with cancer, and it is always a tough battle. My friend Joanie has an 11 year old son, David, who has been fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia for over a year. David is a fighter! I am dedicating this season of grueling workouts to this young man who has been fighting for his life and working hard to win his battle with cancer. Trust me there will be many times I will want to quit this crazy training regimen, but knowing that David and everyone else are fighting an even tougher opponent will keep me going!

How much should you give? That is a very personal question, which only you can answer. I would be happy with any amount you can provide in the fight against cancer. However, I do have some suggestions:

$15,000 – it’s worth a shot right?

$351.50 - $5 for every mile I will be racing.

$70.30 - $1 for every mile I will be racing.

$60.00 - $.25 for every mile I’ll be training this summer.

$35.15 - $.50 for every mile I will be racing.

~Thank you for your support ~
