Walking like a girl to save lives!!

Welcome family and friends to my Team In Training/Leukemia Society (TNT/LLS) 2010 home page!!

Monday, Sept. 27th

Three weeks and counting!! This past weekend we were fortunate to preview part of the course for Nike. A good 75% of it was a trail course (which I do not like) with lots and lots of stairs. It was a brutal course but what kept me going was knowing what I was doing was nothing compared to the treatments my personal honoree Emilie is going thru. She along with Shane and all of our other team honorees are who kept me going.

Sunday, September 19th.

WOW....4 weeks and counting until the Nike Women's Marathon. I cannot believe it is almost here!! This season's team is amazing and being Honoree Captain this season has brought the meaning of the cause so much closer to my heart. Bringing our honoree's stories to the team has given all of us the extra push we need to train each Saturday morning (bright and early) and to fundraise. We have been so fortunate to have some of our honorees come out to our trainings to not only help out at water stops but some also are able to train with us. What an inspiration they are to us. This season we have 2 children who are team honorees, Emilie who is 10 and Dylan who is 8. I long for the day we find a one should endure having cancer but especially not a child.

Thank you for joining in my efforts to find a cure!!!!

Well I am at it again!!! I'm training to participate in the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco on October 17th with Team In Training/The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (TNT/LLS).

When I began my journey with TNT/LLS last year, I did so to honor my dear friend Shane who had lost her battle with her battle with Acute Mylogenous Leukemia in September of 2007. After completing Nike in 2009 I knew I wanted to continue to be a part of TNT/LLS. I was a mentor for the 2010 Spring team and completed Avenue of The Giants in Humboldt County in May. This year we lost one of our team honorees and a friend of mine 10 year old niece was diagnosed with Leukemia on June 7th. I continue to be a part of TNT/LLS because I know what I am doing makes a difference to patients and their families. This season not only will I be a participant, but I am the Honoree Captain for the 2010 Fall team. I had the opportunity to not fundraise, but chose not to take the "easy way out" as my Mom would say. I hope you will join in supporting a cause that is very near and dear to my heart.

All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
