I Finished!
Jul 19, 2013 by Heather Binns

I finished the race and broke the 7-hour mark - woohoo! I completed the Vineman 70.3 race in 6:59:50 - close one :)

Thanks to all who supported me along this wonderful journey. I am truly blessed!

Race time!
Jul 11, 2013 by Heather Binns

I'm in the middle of packing and short on time, but I really wanted to post before I leave for my race.

I trained for 24 weeks and will race on Sunday in the Vineman 70.3 triathlon in honor of 3 people: my Auntie Ana (Ana Del Castillo) who is a survivor of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, my friend Audrey Duffy who currently undergoes treatment for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and my friend Joanne O'Brien who is in remission of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. All 3 women are strong, amazing and wonderous people whom I have the joy of knowing and having in my life! I do this for you 3 and everyone else who cannot fight the fight against blood cancer!

Steven and I leave tomorrow before the sun comes and up and will return Tuesday night. The link to use if you want to track me during my race is at or at and I am bib #1743.

My goal for this race is just to finish, but if I can finish in about 7 hours I will be happier :) My wave start time is 7:54am. Remember, I am swimming 1.2 miles, cycling 56 miles and running 13.1 miles = Vineman 70.3!

Thank you all for your support!

We Did It!
Jul 03, 2013 by Heather Binns

Thank you to everyone that helped me reach my goal thus far!!! I made it and I knew I could with everyone's help! Even though my fundraising page says I haven't hit 100% of my fundraising yet, I did because I am waiting for a $480 matching donation to post. Now it's time to go above and beyond! Why stop now when cancer doesn't? YOU ALL ROCK!!!!

Today is the Last Day to Hit $4,000 the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!
Jul 02, 2013 by Heather Binns

As of 1:02pm today I am still $418.50 away from my goal - we're so close! Please help me help LLS find a cure for blood cancer by making a donation today. I know we can do this together! Thank you :)

Tomorrow Is My Fundraising Deadline!
Jul 01, 2013 by Heather Binns

July 2nd is my fundraising deadline to raise $4,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. As of 12:07pm on July 1st I am still $928.50 away from my goal. Please help me help LLS find a cure for blood cancer by sponsoring a mile or more of my 70.3 miles that I'll be racing in less than 2 weeks!

Example #1: Donate $20 to sponsor one whole mile in honor of a cancer survivor/fighter or in memory of someone whom you've lost to cancer.

Example #2: Donate $70.30 to sponsor $1/per mile of my race.

Please help me help others. I am racing in honor of my Auntie Ana (a survivor), and my friends Audrey Duffey (currently in treatment) and Joanne O' Brien (in remission)! Thank you!!
