Surprise! That's exactly what my twin sister did to me this weekend when she showed up at my Team in Training (TNT) Run Team practice on Saturday. She actually drove down at dawn, to meet us for our 7am practice. We had a great time, she had an opportunity to see how a TNT practice is organized, and she was able to meet my running friends. Our Arizona Rock 'n' Roll Marathon team raced today, and our Carlsbad Marathon team has their race next weekend. Unfortunately, my high ankle-sprain injury and stress injury has me side-lined from my race unless it improves, BUT I will be cheering at the 21 mile mark for the team if I'm not running. So far this season, our team has raised over $136,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to support patients and research for blood cancer. AMAZING! While it's always sad to see one season come to and end, I am very excited about the TNT Summer Season, which starts on Jan 31st. I'll be back on the team as a Mentor, again, as we train for the San Diego Rock 'N' Roll AND Seattle Rock 'N' Roll marathons. (Yup, I'm doing "double header" races for a cure!) I'll keep pounding the pavement until we find a cure for cancer or until my body wears out...and I'm betting on the cure! :) CURES ROCK!

  1. I'm banking on a cure first, too. Though my body will wear out long before yours does. :)

    Hope that ankle heals soon.

    How nice to have a visit with your sister! Art

  2. Oh my God, how can you guys run in those conditions? Isn't that big ball of fire hard on your eyes? How can you run in those short winter pants? Looks like a great group.

A great reminder that I had armies of support beside me in my fight. (Thanks, Lance!) Even with the recent media, this video isn't about the bike...but the fight against cancer. LIVESTRONG!
