Welcome everyone! Thanks for taking time to visit my website, AGAIN!
I wanted to thank all of you who donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society when I trained for the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco last year. The 6 months of training were tough and sometimes agonizing but in the end very rewarding. I made some lifetime friends in my fellow teammates, coaches and mentors. My official time for the marathon was 6:54. Not that impressive but my own personal record!
So after all the celebration died down and after taking a month off from running, I was convinced to train for a TRIATHLON! Crazy since I don't know how to swim well at all! But by finishing a triathlon, I will enter an elite group of Triple Crowner's who have completed 3 different event (hike, century ride, marathon, &/or triathlon) with Team in Training. The LonestarTri will be held in Galveston on April 25,2010. I am signed up for the Olympic distance which is swim 1.5km, bike 25miles and run a 10K. Some experience triathletes are trying to convince me to do the half IRONMAN which is swim 1.2mi, bike 56miles and run a half marathon. If I get the swim part down just right, I just might be convinced to do it. Why not?!
All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. Anything you can donate will greatly be appreciated. If I can just get everyone to donate $5, I will be reaching my goal in no time!
Thanks again for all your support and please come back and visit my site to check for updates!
