WELCOME (BACK) TO MY TEAM IN TRAINING HOME PAGE!

 

I have FULLY joined the crazies, aka the Orange County Iron Team!! If you're not familiar with what an Ironman (or half Ironman) is, it's a (stupid) crazy amount of swimming, cycling, and running... in ONE day. But for real, a half Ironman, otherwise known as a long course triathlon or a 70.3, is made up of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike ride, and a 13.1 mile run, which is what I will be participating in June (plus a little more).

 

The Pacific Crest Endurance Sports Festival's version is called the "Beast Man" because the bike section is 2 extra miles long, making the race 72.3 miles! Not only will I be doing 72.3 miles on Saturday, but have signed up to do a 26 mile bike ride on Friday and another 5K on Sunday. Why, you ask? Because I'm crazy and want the Triple Headed Beast medal (3 different events over three days).

 

All kidding aside, I loved participating in my first triathlon last year through Team In Training (TNT). I learned a lot about my body and its willingness to push through the tired and achy muscles and do something I never thought possible. While I'm going through the same fears of not knowing how I'm going to do 72.3 (plus two other events), I know my body will push through and accomplish something amazing. 

 

Working with LLS for a year and half now has truly opened my eyes to the world of cancer. I was heartbroken this year when we lost an amazing little cancer warrior to this terrible disease, but I've also been amazed by the life changing drugs and therapies for blood cancers that have been approved by the FDA. Both of which, are why I want to continue doing crazy sports driven fundraising. 

 

LLS funded researchers have done amazing things in just this year alone, but we're not done yet, and we won't stop until we find a cure and we stop losing the ones we love the most. 

 

Please join me in the battle to end blood cancer by making a 100% tax deductible donation today. 

Thank you so much for your support!
