MARCH?!?! Where did Febuary go???

Training that's where. Paul is rehabbing his shoulder to try to get back to work...the training has actually helped his recovery some. March Madness applies in our household... Olympic Distance triathlon the first weekend in March and a Half Ironman the last weekend of March. I would say that is madness. :) The real fun is on our blog be sure to check it out. If you are reading this you are probably here to donate... a sincere thank you!

We are closing on out goal and appreaciate you support!

Yours truly, Team Tilden

Happy New Year! We brought in the New Year hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu with our honored teammate and friend Craig. It was a nice break from swimming, biking, and running and an inspirational way to start the new year.

There are pictures and more stories about the start of our year at our blog, Paul had a slight hiccup in his training...a seperated left shoulder due to a bike accident. we are lucky as it could have been worse. but he is pushing forward and is not going to let this small set back get in the way of our goal.

We officially recommited to the Team meaning there is no backing out now! :) Which is good because we love the people we are training with and know that we are making a difference in the fight against cancer.

Happy Holidays to all!

We had hoped to be blogging weekly, but getting ready for a TNT fundraiser we are having on th 19th, the holidays and a big trip, plus work, plus training has left us with little time for the fun things like blogging about our training adventures.

Needless to say we have been in the pool, in the saddle and hitting the pavement for some runs...with Norman even. Although we think 4 miles of running may be his limit!

If we don't talk to you personally in the next week... happy holidays to you and your loved ones.

Take this time to remember how fortunate we are to be healthy and surrounded by those who love us.

Racing to Save Lives

Welcome to our Team's Team In Training home page.

We are training to participate in the Wildflower Half-Ironman Triathlon as members of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. We are completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

Paul & I will be training for the next 8 months for our race which will include swimming 1.2 miles, riding 56 miles and running 13.1 miles, each. 140.6 miles collectively for the two of us. While we know that this will be quite a challenge, we have friends that are facing the very real challenge of battling cancer.

Please make a donation to support our team's participation in Team In

Training and help advance LLS's mission.

We hope you will visit our web site often. Be sure to check back

frequently to see our progress. Thanks for your support!
