Hi, Welcome to my Team In Training home page! I want to make this as personal as possible so you know the reason why I'm partnering with TNT and need your support! :)

I am so excited to partner with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training program to help me train for the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in San Antonio in November! This organization focuses on finding cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I'm so grateful that I have the health to be able to contribute to improving the quality of life for patients and their families by teaming up with TNT.

Unfortunately, it seems like these days everyone has a direct or indirect connection to someone who has gotten cancer. My sweet Pawpaw was lost to lung cancer and that was my first taste of how terrible of a disease it is, no matter the type. My brother-in-law, Ben, was diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukemia two years ago and overcame it (praise God!). We received word last week that it has returned and we are praying for another recovery and remission. These direct familial links to this disease are the reasons why I am running and garnering support. I'd like to make my contribution to those who fight a much harder battle than a measley ol' half marathon. I'll be running in memory of my Pawpaw and in honor of Ben.

Help if you can! If you can't, thoughts and prayers for Ben's second recovery are so awesome too! Thanks for stopping by.
