What Would Betty Do Logo Training: The Road to San Francisco

A Short Workout is Better Than No Workout Several of us committed to the Rock and Roll San Francisco half marathon on a whim, sight unseen. No, really unseen: I registered in 2012 and the course map was only released earlier this month. And when I met with my group of Team in Training alumni […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Putting the Fun in Fundraising

When you join a fundraising team like Team in Training, your first season is easy. Everyone is so proud of you! Of course they want to donate! Good for you! Here’s a check! When you return for a second season, they’re a little less enthusiastic. At it again, eh? Fundraising already? Didn’t I just give […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo This is Your Captain Speaking: Coordinating a Fundraising Raffle

I have a really hard time asking anyone for anything. I’ve always been a self-sufficient, fend-for-myself kind of person, which is why fundraising for Team in Training has always been a challenge. Don’t get me wrong: you’ve all been very generous about supporting me and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s mission. But first I have […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Training: Like Running in a Spacesuit

What Would Betty Do Logo Training: Unlucky Week 7

Anyone who says that you can still work out with a cold has evidently not done battle with the one that’s rattling around in my ears, nose and throat. Four days into it and I’m neither worse, nor better, aside from being vastly more frustrated and restless. The Plan Monday, 7/5: 30 minute easy run […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Training and Traveling

I’ve been taking my commitment to Team in Training seriously. I’ve gotten up at 6:00 a.m. or earlier each morning of my trip and run somewhere between 2-3 miles each day. I gave some thought to running more than that, but with sessions starting at 8:00 a.m. and events running until midnight and beyond, there wasn’t […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Running for Bob

Last month, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma took the life of someone who was far too young to die. I’ve decided to join Team in Training to raise money for leukemia and lymphoma research in his memory. To learn more, please visit my fundraising page. Donations, moral support and race day cheers are very much appreciated. For those who want to […] Read More
