WE DID IT!! Thank you !! 1000x
Sep 21, 2011 by Nancy Chaffin

Thank you all for helping me reach and exceed my personal fundraising goal! This means that in the last 7 months, with your help, I have raised over $7,000 for the LLS!

Thats me, giving you a big thumbs up!

I'm training to participate in my 2nd endurance event (NIKE Women's Marathon on Oct 16th in San Francisco) as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. 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. Like these guys: David, Josh B, Josh K, Justin and Bill. (Dave and Josh B trained with me during Spring Season - very cool dudes!)

Or these awesome ladies: Cynthia, Jen, Kendra (Cynthia trained with me in Spring season and was also a member of the "Back Packs")

And running in honor of lives taken too soon due to complications of blood cancer, like Donna. As well as, Wendy, her daughter and one of my best friends, who misses her Mom every day.

These people are the real heroes and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

Even though I have met my personal goal... until people STOP dying of blood cancers, we still need to raise more funds to help researchers find a cure. Please make a tax deductable donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. Thanks for your support!

Hi folks,

I had updated my facebook page(s) and the EVITE but unfortunately did not update this page!

The original date of the drawing was scheduled for 10/10 (tomorrow) -- until I found out that we have a 18 mile run that day -- no way my tired bones would be a good hostess that day. So, I moved the BBQ to the 17th.

I am finding that the 17th is a tough day for folks -- not many folks have rsvp'd and many NO's. So here is how the 17th is going to go down:

  • • The official Drawing will start at 6:00pm on 9/17 -- and I will post each drawing on Facebook (friend me if we arent already fb besties!).
  • • My house will be open from 4- 9 pm for food and bevies.... Kid friendly?? YES Please!! Zach will be there and will love the company!

If you are coming, please let me know -- I want to make sure I have enough food those that show up! ;) There is an evite and a facebook event invite out there -- please rsvp to one of them :)

Not on the invite(s) but want to come?? Let me know and you are as good as gold!



WHOOOOOOOWEEEEEEEE!!!!! RAFFLE MANIA!! GOOOOOOD LUCK and thanks again for your continued support!

Training Update:

Never been much of a summer girl. When I dated online for a few years, I could always tell when a guy was trying to figure out how much I weighed when he would ask me what my favorite season was. My answer was always, "Winter! I dont like the heat!". I think they automatically assumed that meant I was 500lbs.

I was hesitant to sign up for SUMMER season because of my bad relationship with Summer. Funny thing is, that when you are conditioning yourself to be an endurance athlete (never thought I would use that noun when talking about myself!), the heat is just yet another thing you work with... like a tight hamstring or a blister on your big toe.

2 Tuesdays ago, it was 95 degrees and we were scheduled to run up and down this hill.

First we had to run to it... then run up and down it at least 4 times. My mind told me things like: "not a good idea", "this is unsafe - you could get heat stroke". "no one is going to show up for this tonight, stay at home". Silly mind.

It was hard, but we did it... all of us... a whole lot of us showed up (just look at all that purple in the pic!). We guzzled down our water and just made it happen. It was no harder than any other work out. Sure, the heat slows you down a bit... but it doesnt stop you... and it didnt stop us.

I love my team. I love the friends I have made. I love that I have more faith in my body. I love that we are making a difference in lots of peoples lives. I love to be surronded by people who have faith and hope.

Thanks for visiting my page! The first 5 folks to leave me a message below will get a free raffle ticket. :)
