Tri-ing For a Cause!

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

As of April 20, 2011 I've decided to participate in my 3rd endurance event as a member 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. I am 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!

My first TNT event was a marathon, my second a triathlon, and now i'm taking on my first Half Ironman - Pocono 70.3! I originally signed up for this event to do on my own, but while coaching TNT runners over the past year, I have decided I want to achieve this personal milestone with the TEAM and add so much more meaning to crossing the finish line! When I cross the finish line I will know how many lives I was able to save with the help of generous people like you!

I am extremely nervous and excited going into this event and I look forward to spending the next few months training with the TEAM. Each time I become intimidated by the 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run through the Pocono Mountains, I remind myself how simple this is compared to what those individuals living with cancer go through on a day to day basis.

Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. I know we have all been touched by someone with cancer, please feel free to make a donation in honor of them and include them in your comment which will show on my page!

I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress as I get closer and closer to being able to participate in this life changing event once I reach my fundraising minimum. Thank you for your support as I couldn't do this without amazing, generous people like you!
