Ive Reached My Goal
Jun 13, 2019
In case you’re unaware in order to run the Chicago Marathon with Team In Training you have minimum fundraising requirement in order to run the marathon. I was a bit worried I wouldn’t be able to raise enough but I’m so happy to say I reached my goal!!! So at this point I’m going to bump up my goal because why not raise more money for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. But I do want to take a moment to thank everyone that has donated. I’m so proud to be doing this race and I hope I make you all proud as well!
Week 1 of Training is done!
Jun 09, 2019

When I began fundraising for Team In Training I also began training for the Chicago Marathon. 

Im a little over a week into and I’ll admit I’m a bit sore, feeling fatigued as I’m running more than usual but I’m so motivated.  The fact so many people have donated and have been so generous just pushes me to get out there and get it done.  

Of course with that the fear of will I finish? What if I get injured? What if I get hurt? Kicks in big time. So I am trying to listen to my body , stretch often and really rest on my recovery days. I do NOT want to let anyone down. 

Heres a little breakdown of my training plan this week I thought I’d share 

Day 1- run 3 miles 

Day 2-speed training at the track 2.4 miles

Day 3-recovery (stretching) 

Day 4-Hills training 3 miles at Chestnut Ridge Park 

Day 5-Long Run 6 miles

Day 6-recovery 

Day 7- 3 miles


I will admit I am shocked!!!
Jun 02, 2019
When deciding to do the Chicago Marathon I had two big fears. Would I be able to raise enough money and will I be able to finish the race. With just over 48 hours since I posted on Facebook looking for donations I can’t believe I’m past 700.00! I’ve always been someone that sees the good in people but I am just shocked at how generous people are. I’m SO thankful! It feels a bit like Christmas! I post this for those who may have some trepidation about signing up for a race for a charity. Try not to let it scare you away. I still have some ideas to raise some more for Team In Training and will work hard to do so but really just wanted to say thank you to everyone that has so generously given. Hopefully the training aspect will feel just as rewarding.

Hi everyone! Welcome to my fundraising page. As some of you may know I like running races ;) While I may not be the fastest I love the journey and the memories I make at each event. Ive lost count of how many I have done, however on October 13, I will be completing my first race raising money for a charity. I’m going big with this one, I will be doing the Chicago Marathon as a member of Team In Training for Leukemia and Lymphnoma Society.

The mission of LLS is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. We are the voice for all blood cancer patients and we work to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients.

I am super excited about this opportunity to give back to others while completing this marathon.  I’m asking you to please consider donating to my team. I admit it’s hard for me to ask for money but please remember it is for a good cause.  Any amount would be sincerely appreciated.

It takes more than one person to make up a team and that’s why I’m asking you to donate to my TNT fundraising page for TNT!


By participating as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.


Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.


Patients need these cures and they need your support.


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.


Thank you!
