My decision to join forces with Team In Training (TNT) was not an easy one. Actually, it was 21st Century Mom‘s suggested way into the 2008 Nike Women’s Marathon. I was apprehensive, but I soon realized that the idea had its merits.
I gathered a bit more information about what my participation with TNT would require of me. Realizing that raising money for any cancer is cannot be bad, I made the leap and signed up. Knowing that my next marathon with be #13, I figure that this is one way to make bring some "good" (if not luck) to the number.
I have to admit that I was very nervous about joining TNT. I hate asking for money – even if the cause it worthy of funding. So I sent my emails out and prayed that people would forgive me for asking. I knew that there would be a few recipients who recognize the cause as worthy, and who would be able to help ensure that I would not have to fork over my committed amount in October.
EVERY donation, no matter what the size is huge. It ALL makes a difference.
If you are feeling left out, it is not too late. To donate on my behalf to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, simply click on the TNT icon above. I have only about $550 left to raise, and anything after that is icing on the cake so to speak.
Now that the hard part is nearly done, I can relax a little. It is time to get excited about running again. The TNT "kick off" event is set for May 31st. Then I will officially be training with TNT for the 2008 Nike Women’s Marathon (my 13th marathon), meeting other runners, and hopefully making some new friends too.
