Race to Save Lives! (TNT Summer Season is here!)

This picture was taken at the finish line of my first marathon, the 2008 Rock 'n' Roll San Diego Marathon. I started training for it 4 months after I received the last of my treatments for leukemia...all due to my friend and ultra runner...Mike Sheehy. He ran the 2007 one on my behalf while I was battling cancer as member of Team in Training (TNT) to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. He (along with my friends Joe & Judy) handed me a letter that day which dared me to get better and run the race with him the following year. And I did.

I did not train for that race alone. I ran with Team in Training, a freakishly AWESOME endurance program of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. (You can read some of my original training posts at the beginning of this blog in 2008.) This is my 5th season training with them (just completed my 3rd marathon in AZ). Guess what?! Our next season is starting...the super-galactic-super-awesome SUMMER SEASON of TNT!!!! (training for the San Diego and Seattle Rock 'n' Roll Half/Full Marathons)

Our first running practice is THIS weekend, so come on out to find out more!! Comment on this post if you'd like more information (or email me). Your life will never be the same, and you'll become a hero (in running shoes instead of a cape) to patients and families fighting cancer.

Join me & let's race to save lives!!! (If you'd prefer to donate and spare yourself the torture of training for an endurance race, you can also donate to my Cures Rock! fundraising page by clicking here.)


  1. Go Team! Go Cures Rocks! Go Jules!

  2. Thanks, Art! Looking forward to meeting you in Seattle!! I'll be running SD with TNT, and Seattle I'm signing up on my own (but will be out there for support & pasta party with TNT). Wahoo!

  3. Very cool! Glad you are doing TNT again. SD is a great race. That is one of our featured races for Team Virginia - special fundraising minimums - so I hope we add participants for that. We only have 7 so far out of Richmond and I am the only one for Seattle to date. Looking forward to meeting you! Art

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!
