Getting started

So - when I completed my last Triathlon this season - in September 2008, I decided it was time to do something bigger than my own challenge and do something for the greater good. So I decided to challenge myself and those who would join me to complete 40 races during the 40th year of my life, starting May 5th 2009. Even if no one joins me in any of these races, I will do this. These 40 races would be comprised of running events such as, 5K's, 10K's, Half Marathons and Full Marathons - possibly an Ultra Marathon. Also, Triathlons, from Sprint, to Olympic, to Half Ironman (or Ironman 70.3) and possibly a Full Ironman. Tack on to this list, Metric Century rides(62 miles), Century Rides (100 miles) and possibly Multi-day rides. It will be a challenge - but I am doing this for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)- Looking to raise at least $40,000, introduce 400 new members to the Team In Training Team with LLS - and more importantly - raise awareness of the LLS Mission and honor 40 honor patients. People who are currently battling blood related diseases - and remembering those who have succumbed to them.

Care to join me for a race or two?
