Oregon Girl

Thanks to everyone for your support and encouragement over these last 6+ months as I've recovered from my running injuries, reached my fund raising goal for The LLS through Team In Training, and trained my way back to the 1/2 IM distance.

We leave soon for our vacation in Sunriver and race day. I'll most likely be off the grid until next Thursday when I plan to report back with a great race report. I have no illusions about how I'll do if the heat is in full force, but I know that the race will be great regardless. I hope that I've been able to present TNT in the best possible light and that you will consider partnering with them in the future for an event. It could change your outlook on life, give you some of the best friends you'll ever have, and help save lives.

This Oregon girl is heading to the high desert...to enjoy some of this...

Congrats on reaching the fundraising goals and finishing out the training! It's a tall order, for sure, and a huge commitment. Good luck next week - can't wait to read the report!

I was just reflecting on my own experiences with Team in Training this morning :)

Best of luck. You will do great. I can't wait to hear about it. The "local" TNT coach is the nicest running man in Vermont. He has gotten so many people going. He is a real treasure.
