Saving Lives, One Mile and One Donation at a Time

Welcome to Aaron and Amanda's TNT (kick'n cancer's bum) page!

We started off training for the Canyonlands Half Marathon in March. Soon after, during a frigid Saturday morning 5k run to be precise, we were completely caught up in the spirit of the campaign and want to do everything we can to help The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.


2/6 Ran about 10 miles on a taper run today and felt great! Ramping up for next week which should be about 16 miles.

1/30 Longest run so far! 14 miles today and definitely felt it. The training aspect of this is getting more and more difficult, but we conquered it like the badasses we are!

1/24 We are currently running about 1.5 hours every weekend in addition to 4 shorter runs per week. We have learned the importance of icing, the benefits (and dangers!) of using performance gels, and fun things like chaffing and blisters. Every run feels like a major accomplishment and our goal is in sight. Keep us running!

What's happening now. Not only are we running a half marathon, but a full marathon one month later! We hope this will have the maximum impact and raise even more money for research to help people fighting leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma and myeloma. To do this, we need your help!

We are now training 5 times a week, running longer than 3 hours on some occassions. We have also given much of our personal time and attention for the benefit of this cause. So what can you do? Help us by making a donation today! Even if it's only $1, every little bit helps. Thank you so much for visiting and have a wonderful day! Check back and see how our progress is going!
