I'm just your average Bay Area Art Director trying something new for the first time.
I'm training for my first triathlon!
It's the Pacific Grove Olympic-distance Tri in September (translation: 1.5K Swim, 40K Bike, and 10K Run).
I'm racing with Team-in-Training to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help in the fight against leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma. I'm racing in honor of all those individuals battling blood cancers, but most of all, to honor my friend Daisy Hebb, who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia in late January.
Since meeting Daisy on a 6-day trek around the highest peak in Southern Peru, she's inspired me to raft insane rivers, climb ruins, learn to dance salsa and now to train for my first triathlon as she continues to fight her cancer with a stem cell transplant beginning mid-June.
Off to swim, bike and run for the next few months.
Enjoy the tales.
Thanks for your support!
