Startin' Early
Jun 09, 2013 by Ginger Templeton

This time last year I was just starting to run. I bet I wasn't even up to 2 miles without walking. Then I set a goal. A crazy, wonderful, life-changing goal. To run a marathon. I didn't care about time (at least too much). I didn't care if I walked (okay, really I wanted to run the whole way). But mostly I wanted to prove I could do something that I shouldn't be able to if I worked really hard and pushed my limits.


After all, my daughter was pushed to her own limits during cancer treatment. And she never complained. And my husband and son and I all endured more than most can imagine, and we thrived. So what was a little thing like a marathon?


But what do you do after you've run a marathon? You could take a nap. Enjoy an ice bath. Give up on that nonsense altogether.



Or you could take on a bigger challenge.


39.3 in 2 days. That's right. A half marathon on Saturday. A full on Sunday. If Joey Fatone can do it, I know I can.


Can you help me reach my goal of $10,000? Let's End Cancer so I can get back to relaxing on the couch!

Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.


Welcome to my Team In Training home page.


I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.
