Helping the cause

As you know, I'm currently training for the Seagull Century in October. It's going to be a very memorable event as it will be my fourth endurance event for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. My first event was in 2005 - The Mayor's Midnight Sun marathon in Anchorage, Alaska.

It was amazing - as you can imagine. I even enjoyed the last few miles of the marathon, which are typically anything but pleasant.

I am so flattered and excited to report that I have been asked to serve as a mentor for the spring 2010 cycling team. I'll be helping the spring team fund raise and train for their century ride. Hopefully, I'll join them on the ride, too.

I love combining my hobbies (endurance stuff like swimming, cycling and...maybe running) with something that helps others (fundraising for blood cancers).

This has been a happy, happy day.

I agree - they couldn't have picked someone better. Can't wait to hear more about it!
