Loss is such a hard thing
Jun 02, 2014 by Leslie Moss

So every now and then grief just sneaks up on you at the most unexpected times. You hear a song that reminds you of a loved one or see something that they loved like their favorite flower in the grocery store. My friend calls this Ninja Grief because it sneaks up on you silently.

Every spring when the Cherry Blossoms bloom is a time for ninja grief for me. My dear friend Evelyn loved everything pink. She was truly a pink princess. She passed during the cherry blossom season and I remember sitting on a bench outside my office just utterly heart broken missing her and knowing the impact she had on my life that cancer cut short just before her 50th birthday. I want to find a cure for these horrible diseases so that we can stop losing so many people we love.

Sparkle Skirt Raffle
Mar 14, 2014 by Leslie Moss

Sparkle Skirts have become a regular part of my running since the first skirt I bought. When I started my running journey I was a plus sized lady in a regular sized running world. Sparkle Skirts stood out like a beacon of light carrying sizes even larger then I was at the time. I bought my first skirt to run as Minnie Mouse and I refuse to run in anything else. Oh the pockets!

I am running in June to help find a cure for cancer. Cancer has touched my life in too many ways to count but currently my father is struggling with cancer and my half-brother is in Hospice living out his last days.

In Memory of...
Feb 01, 2014 by Leslie Moss

I have decided to run a half marathon for this amazing charity. The goal of this charity is to raise enough money to fund the reasearch it will take to cure cancer. Cancer has touched my life in so many ways. My dear friend lost her husband to Leukemia and just a few short years later lost her own life to brain cancer. Evelyn was one of those people that brightened the room when she entered and Ralph was such a gentle man. They were lovely people and had an amazing daughter who has to now live on without her parents.

I also run in memory of my cousin who at the mere age of 33 lost her life to cancer leaving behind three small boys. I run in honor of these people that touched my life and that lost theirs to such awful diseases.

Help me help cure cancer. It's long over due.

Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.


Welcome to my Team In Training home page.


I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.
