Team in Training

If you are looking for something new in your life, something that is challenging and fullfilling and rewarding , I suggest you check out Team in Training.  Team in Training and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society work together to create awarness and raise money for blood cancer research.

I joined Team in Training for many reason, initially for personal reasons like getting in shape and crossing triathlon off my bucket list.  Then I got to know the people involved with Team in Training and learned just how much blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma touch so many people.  My unlce is one that lost his battle…he had lymphoma that then turned into leukemia.


My goal is to complete an Olympic Triathlon in SunRiver, OR.  An olympic triathlon consists of a .9 mile swim, 28 mile bike, and 6 mile run.  Training has been exhuasting but worth every second when I think about our real hereos, the ones battling blood cancer, day in and day out.  As a team, we meet 3 days a week for training, run on Saturday, swim on Sunday, and bike on Wednesday.  It is also recommended that each one of these is done "on your own" during the week as well with one rest day.  I'm a single mom, I work full time, I take a night class and yet I still find time, better yet, I make time for this amazing organization with the hopes that I can help in the race to finding a cure.


The other part of my training is also raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Right now, my fundraising consists of a Miche Bag Fundraiser on February 11, 2011 and a Yard Sale Fundraiser scheduled for February 12, 2011, along with letters to friends and family.  For more information about those fundraisers, please check out my webiste.  From there you can also donate directly, learn more about Team in Training, how you can get involved, and learn more about The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Thank you.
