Rick the "Half Ironman" to be. But whats my other half?
Feb 25, 2011

This Spring I'm training towards the Wildflower triathalon with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. We are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.


I'll be doing the "Half Ironman" course, a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and a half marathon run. Gulp. The big day is Saturday April 30th. The location: Lake San Antonio, California.


I am completing this event in honour of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. In particular I am swimming, biking and running in honour of 2 wonderful people:


  • Firstly, my fond friend, Chris "Cobol Chris" Hubbard who died of lymphoma in 2004 after a long battle, aged 35. Thats him on the left, managing to look dignified as the rest of us drank ourselves under the table at the Fat Cat in Ipswich, UK.



  • Secondly, I have another friend who has a possible reocurrence of lymphoma as we speak. She's doing well, and our fingers are crossed that the tests will return with good news.


Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.


I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!


Rick

PS: If I'm going to be a Half Ironman ... whats my other half? Answers on a postcard please.
