Racing to Save Lives

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I am going to be running in the San Diego Rock 'N Roll half-marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. I, along with my teammates from "Team Shrinking Jeans", 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, one of those being my Uncle Jimmie. He and everyone else are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

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. I have started a blog that will detail my experience from training to thoughts about TNT and any interesting tidbits and fun facts that I feel like sharing with the world.

Thanks for your support!

    "Yay, Kirsten! You are indeed dedicated to the cause! I say lop it off! But with your hair being so long, simply a short cut should be plenty of a change! So... not really sure which camp that puts me in. Cut it off, but no buzz cut, alright?!"

    "You are an angel to do this. This group helped us so much when Jimmie was fighting Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. God Bless All of You. Love, Jimmie & Lois"

    "Damn, Tim just keeps sucking money out of me...sorry Kirsten, I meant to do this 2 months ago, but completely forgot. My brother Mark was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 4 years ago. He's lucky, he had the type only 5% of people get, otherwise he would have been gone at least 2 years ago. Thanks for what you're doing!"
