Whenever I’m running a race and happen by an area playing T.N.T. it brings a smile to my face and sends a shiver down my spine. Last year at this time I joined the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training ( TNT ) to run my first marathon. I crossed the finish line on June 1st, 2008 at the Rock-n-Roll Marathon in San Diego and a year later I’m still running with TNT.
The names and faces change each season but the work remains the same. Our primary goal is to raise money for Blood Cancer Research and during these tough economic times all the TNT participants have to work a little harder to meet the fund raising requirements to remain on the team.
This season I am taking a break from fund raising and instead working as a Mentor. I feel fortunate because as in the lyrics of the AC/DC song I have “Women to the left of me and Woman to my right“ Five young ladies to be exact and I’d like the see each one of them reach the fund raising minimum with the least amount of stress so they can concentrate on training.
If you know any of these running woman or are just in the mood to spread a little goodness feel free to give generously.
