Welcome to my Team In Training home page!
(SF Nike Women's Marathon 2009)
Hello again everyone!
As many of you might remember, I did Team In Training (TNT) back in 2009 to help raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS.) With your help, I was able to raise over $2,100 to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.
Once again, I am participating in the San Francisco Nike Women's Marathon, and I will be running 13.1 miles for the cause. This particular race means a LOT more to me than any race I've ever done...
Some of you may remember the last time I did TNT, I ran in honor of a friend of mine, Christina Parks, who was battling Hodgkin's disease. Although she fought hard and had been cancer free for over a year, we recently lost her because of health complications brought on by the disease.
Almost immediately, I decided I wanted to do Team In Training again in memory of Christina. Not only is it an important cause, but TNT meant a lot to Christina as well. She also raised several thousand dollars with Team In Training, and the fact that it was such an important part of her life makes it even more special to me this time around.
I am also excited to be joined by several of my friends, who were also close with Christina. Angela Lang, Colleen Peralta, and Anya Combs, all friends from the Conservatory at University of the Pacific, are doing Team in Training fundraising of their own to honor Christina as well.

This is so important to all of us, and your support means the world! Please, donate so that I can not only honor a wonderful friend, but help so many others just like her. Lets do our part in beating blood cancers once and for all!
Go Team! FOR CHRISTINA!!! We love you! <3
