In 2014, I did my frist triathlon with Team in Training and had a blast, making great frienships and getting into shape all while supporting a greater cause, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

Since then, I have continued training and doing triathlons, mentoring for TNT in 2015. In August 2016, while training for Santa Cruz 70.3, I got into a bike accident which forced me to rest these past months. With this new year, I feel ready to get back in the game. I'll be training my way to make my comeback at Pasadena Triathlon this upcoming March.

Here are the top 3 reasons I'm back on the team:

  1. To get back on the bike and regain strength & confidence in the sport by making my comeback in finishing a race after the accident

  2. To train among new friends and familiar faces, including the coaches - Marin, Amanda, and Simon (who led me to a bronze medal in my frist triathlon)

  3. To support a great cause LLS and be a part of Team Sonia, supporting Coach Simon's mother who was diagnosed with an advanced form of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) called Richter's Transformation, and was luckily able to beat cancer (click to read more about her story here). As a unit, we are trying to collect at least $100K and all the money raised for Team Sonia will be earmarked for a reaserch grant by LLS that will be tied with her name.

Your support and donation would be greatly appreciated. Every cent donated is 100% tax deductible & you would be contibuting to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society that has now raised in excess of 1 billion dollars towards blood cancer research & patient services.

Life is precious and can be taken in an instant whether through cancer or through an unexpected accident. I've learned more to not take life for granted; to appreciate being alive and the life of those around you. 
With that I leave you with an inspirational quote and song (that I wrote during my recovery process).

"Sometimes we are taken into troubled waters not to drown but to be cleansed."

"See when you fall in life, don't give up just quite. Rest up, no shame and then get back in the game." Crash Boom by Jessica Brizuela, 2016
