SARAH'S TEAM IN TRAINING (TNT) HOME PAGE!

WHY I USED TO RUN

Years ago, before kids, I ran a lot; on the track at U of O, co-ed soccer teams, trail running, Greenlake runs. I ran to be healthy, and because it felt great! In those days, I could leave my door and just go, sometimes coming back after 2 or more hours. I'm sure I ran 13+ miles on some of my longer runs, without even thinking about it.

My days of running without looking at the clock seem like a lifetime ago! And my life has changed in every way. Now I'm a mom of 2 kids under 5! My youngest is not quite 8 months old. Now, it's hard to find the time to run much less anything else that isn't kid-related. Even finding the time to update this page has taken me weeks longer than it would have before kids!! 

WHY I RUN NOW

My reasons for running have changed too. I still run to be healthy but now I also run to set an example for my girls. And, in November, I'll run the Las Vegas Rock 'n' Roll half Marathon as a member of Team Haley, a Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) team.

Haley is the 10 year-old niece of my dear friend Jenny. She has been fighting leukemia for over a year and endured hundreds of oral and IV chemotherapy doses, 25 spinal taps, 5 blood transfusions, and many many other invasive procedures (planned and unplanned) as part of her treatment. I can't imagine the strength it has taken Haley to undergo these and still keep her positive attitude.

TEAM HALEY 

As part of Team Haley, my personal goal is to raise $2400. Our team is collectively running to raise over $100,000 for LLS, and ensure that Haley's name will be linked to Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia research funding. More than 60 other people will join me as part of Team Haley to raise these funds.

If you can, please give. Any donation big, or small, is appreciated! 

Thank you!
