Welcome to my Team In Training home page in support of my running the Boston Marathon!! My training is complete with 410 miles of running/walking and 50 hours of cross training completed. So just a marathon to go!!


I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. Most of you don't know that my grandmother died of Leukemia. So in her honor and to celebrate my 50th birthday year, I started training with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training organization. Now I just turned 51 and my bib number is 22,051 for race day. Coincidence - I think not!


I am honestly stunned at all the support I have received from friends and family so far who have helped me reach my $5,000 goal. But don't stop now as you can still make a difference to help eliminate blood cancers!
