My Journey

Go Team!!!

Over the past few weeks I have been reminiscing about my time with Team in Training.  I spent so much of my time for a few years dedicated to Team in Training and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  I lived and breathed TNT and LLS, so much that I  thought I would be involved for life.  At one point though, it felt like it just consumed my life and I stepped back.  Waaaay back, and then almost three years passed.

I was cleaning out a drawer full of old race gear and sorted through my TNT shirts.  I looked at them and remembered fondly each of the events they were tied to, and the people I had met over the course of the training for the events.  Many of those people are still found on my Facebook news feed, but there have been a few I lost contact with and one very tough loss of an Honored Teammate.  I posted this picture and mentioned how I missed everyone, then one of those Facebook friends said “Yes we miss you too. Come join us for Nike kick off is Saturday in Sonoma.”

And that's not even all of them!
And that’s not even all of them!

I knew before I even walked into the Kick Off that I was signing up for a new event.  I knew there would be wonderful reunions with people I hadn’t seen in years and the inspirational talks from honorees and staff would make it that much easier to sign the papers.  So I signed up.  Nike Women’s Half.  So, it’s almost a full circle.  My first event with Team In Training in 2008 was the Nike Women’s Marathon, where I completed the full 26.2 miles.  It was by far my favorite event to complete, mentor, and coach.  There is something completely magical about the Nike Women’s Marathon and I can’t wait to get back to training with my team.

Here’s to being reunited with my purple peeps!  GO TEAM!!!
