At it Again ...

Since Cynthia and I joined Team in Training over a year ago I have become hooked on the mission and personal benefits of TNT. Since joining TNT I have walked in three half-marathons, a full-marathon, and trained for another full-marathon. I've also been a fundraising participant (with Cynthia we raised nearly $5000 ), a mentor for two seasons, and am now coaching (with the help of another coach and two mentors) the Walk Team for the Fall 2009 season. I've also lost and kept off over 40 pounds. But, that was just a start.


In addition to coaching the Walk Team, I'm training to participate in the Nike Women's Marathon (yes, they do let men participate) in San Francisco next October as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. I'm doing this to raise funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event in honor of my friends that are battling and have lost the battle against blood cancers.


Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.


Between now and October I plan on raising over $5000 towards blood cancer research and treatment and walking over 600 miles while doing it.


I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!


Over Labor Day Weekend Cynthia and I travelled to Disneyland with some of our TNT walking friends to participate in the Disneyland Half Marathon. We and 10 of our friends all completed the event and had a great weekend in the park. It was a great warmup for our upcoming half marathon in Albuquerque (Cynthia) and full marathon in San Francisco (Karl), both of which take place in just a couple of weeks (October 18th).
