Training for a CURE!
Jan 12, 2013

It's official! After crossing the finish line in the Mayor's Marathon in Alaska this past June with Team In Training (my first ever endurance event), I have decided to join the TEAM again to complete my first triathlon! I will be completing the ELEVEN Lake Oconee Olympic triathlon on May 11, 2013. That's a .93 mile swim, 25 mile bike ride, and a 6.2 mile run!

Now that I have a snazzy bike, I am ready for training to begin...

Thanks to all of my wonderful friends and family that supported me, I was able to raise over $4,400 as a first time participant for Team In Training.

This season, I will be training in honor of Jason Cadena who continues to inspire and motivate me as a cancer survivor. He recently received a clean 3 month PET scan and is back at GCSU finishing his degree! This time last year Jason was in critical care in the hospital with Stage 3 T Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, battling for his life. His oncology doctor's remind him daily that due to the massive inoperable tumor in his chest and his overall diagnosis it is a true miracle that he is alive and doing so well!

My goal this season is to raise $2,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). LLS has made SO many huge impacts on blood cancer research and I am thrilled to be a part of the $1.32 billion raised to reach the ultimate finish line of a cure for cancer!

Someday is TODAY! Visit the LLS website at to learn more about the promising research that is being conducted and join our mission to cure cancer by donating to LLS!

Thanks in advance for your support!
