Hello Friends and Family,
Welcome to my Team In Training Webpage.
As most of you know I have a passion for challenges and a love for cycling. What you may not remember was my first 100 mile bike ride with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training in 2003 when my cycling friend was diagnosed with Lymphoma. I joined this wonderful organization to raise money to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers.
If you have it in your heart and wallet to donate, please do! Here is the link to her donation page:I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support; I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well. …. Since 2003 I have completed two other century bike rides and a hiking adventure down the Grand Canyon with Team In Training. I have made many friends along the way and am so grateful for the opportunity to help in a cause I believe in. Thank you all for your past support.
This year I am training to participate in another 100 mile bike ride. This is an epic ride around Lake Tahoe in both Nevada and California. It includes a challenging 800 foot climb to a rest stop overlooking Emerald Bay and a 1,000 foot climb to Spooner Junction. It includes an out and back on Highway 89/ Bike Trail to visit historic Truckee, California, before continuing around the lake. There are also many short rolling ascents and descents totaling over 2,600 vertical feet of elevation gain! The altitude ranges between 6,300 feet and 7,100 feet above sea level.
This is a very difficult ride with training beginning in February and continuing every Saturday for four months. This doesn’t seem like much compared to all the individuals who are battling blood cancers.
Whatever you give counts!
On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, thank you very much for your support. I greatly appreciate your generosity.
