Last November, I Joined Team in Training, an organization that assists with fundraising and training for an endurance sport, to complete an olympic distance triathlon while raising money to find cure for blood cancer. In the begining it seemed a daunting and unimaginable task, but after 4 months of heavy training I feel I am prepared for the race. This has been a life changing experience. I heard very inspiring stories from cancer survivers, met amazing people, and pushed my physical limits to become prepared for such a difficult race. At the same time I am proud of my contributions to a great cause. Hope you can join us and help find cure for blood cancer.
Hope to see you,
