In The Home Stretch
Apr 26, 2012 by Jareesa Tucker

I can't believe its almost May! Where did the time go? Seems like just a few weeks ago that I attended a #TNT event & signed up for the Green Bay Half-Marathon.


Over the past few months, I've been more active than I've ever been. I've met great people. I've had some aches & pains, some blisters & soreness...and it's all been worth it. I know that my training is for a great cause and that's for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. LLS makes such a difference in the lives of patients and their families.


Thank you so much to everyone who has donated! I appreciate your support so much! You make it possible for me to head to Green Bay and keep going to the finish line. If you haven't donated yet & would like to, there's still time! Any donation you can give is greatly appreciated & goes towards research & support for those suffering from blood cancers.


In a few weeks, I'll be doing the Green Bay Half-marathon. I couldn't do this without your support, so thank you so very much! :-)

Almost Halfway There!
Mar 06, 2012 by Jareesa Tucker

Hi everyone!


Can you believe it's March already? Where did the time go? Seems like I just signed up for Team In Training...and now its March already. Before we know it, it will be time for the Green Bay Half-marathon!


Just a few weeks ago, this was my sessions on the treadmill. Now? We're doing longer distances & picking up the pace! Training is going well though - I got new running shoes which have really helped. The aches & pains aren't fun, but well worth it for such a great cause.


As we reach the halfway point in training, we also reach the halfway point with our fundraising as well. To date, I've raised $1000 thanks to the generosity of people like you! Thank you so much for all your help! $1000 is great but I still have further to go. I need to reach $1150 by March 20, and I KNOW I can do it with your support. Remember, each donation is tax-deductible, and there's no limit on how many donations you can make, or the size of the donation.


My final goal is $2300 - totally achievable! I just need your support to get there, and I can definitely make it to the finish line, both for fundraising & for the Green Bay Half-marathon.

Training Has Begun!
Feb 12, 2012 by Jareesa Tucker

It's February, which means that training has begun for the Green Bay Half-marathon! I'm super excited to be participating with #TNT and raising funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!


On February 4 #TNT had their kick-off event for the summer events, including Green Bay, San Diego, and Minneapolis races. I got a chance to meet my mentor, Tad, and my West Metro training coach, Seth. I also met lots of other mentors & volunteers like me who are committing their time & energy to raising $ & completing a great event.

Check out my friend Bianca & teammate Julie!

And here's Julie & I with Coach Seth


This Saturday was our first group run...and of course it had to happen the one day this winter where it was really cold! I woke up at 8AM & the weather channel told me it was 1 degree outside! Normally I'd NEVER agree to exercise outside in the middle of the winter, but I couldn't bail on the first TNT group training. So I put on 3 layers of clothes, my hat & gloves & headed out the door.


Check out the crowd that greeted me in the parking lot at Lake Calhoun:


We were only outside for about 45 minutes, and during our time outside I got to meet others who are walking or run/walking. Yay, I'm not alone! LOL. It was a challenge, but I'm glad I made it out in the cold.


Our next group run is Wednesday night & i'm looking forward to it. As I continue to train, both alone & at group events, I'm reminded that I'm spending all this time sweating for a great cause. Go Team!!!

10% There!
Jan 25, 2012 by Jareesa Tucker

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far! Your generosity has helped me reach the 10% mark towards my goal. I'm so humbled & encouraged that you are willing to help me meet my goal towards raising funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!


TNT begins group runs in a couple of weeks, but I've already begun hitting the treadmill in preparation. I'm also going to be joining in on group run/walks with the BGR! Twin Cities group, which is an awesome group as well. I'll be posting updates on my training as I continue.


Once again, thank you so much for all your help and support! If you can, please spread the word as well.


Until next time,

Jubi

Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.


Welcome to Jubi'sTeam In Training home page.


I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.
