Guest Blog Post: Inspiration from Team in Training and Upcoming Races For Charity



Today's guest blog is brought to you by Team in Training (TNT), an organization that brings together runners, cyclists, and sports enthusiasts to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. TNT provides fundraising support, coaching, training and more to help athletes along the way as they fund a great cause. Learn more about TNT at: http://www.teamintraining.org/ma/.

With the Boston Marathon quickly approaching on April 15th, the dedicated group of individuals running with Team In Training (TNT) keep on fighting! Having just completed their 20 mile run, the team stays focused, while keeping their eye on the prize- the satisfaction of knowing they run for something bigger than themselves. Having already raised over $770,000 for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the team keeps pushing to reach that $1 million milestone. Their efforts bring us one step closer to finding a cure to cancer.
 
With race day around the corner, former Boston Marathon participant, Whitney Olson, can’t help but reminisce about her experience with the team last year:

“Team in Training touched me in a way I didn't realize it would. I never thought that I would make friends with women that I’ll undoubtedly stay in touch with for years to come. I never thought that I’d actually consider raising thousands of dollars again, but I am. It felt so good to be a part of something that is bigger than myself. Everyone of those Team in Training members was utterly committed to that marathon in ways I didn’t know possible. To say they impressed me is an understatement. I’d recommend Team in Training to anyone looking to run with a charity. And to my team, friends, running partners, coaches, volunteers and staff, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the experience of a lifetime!”

If Whitney doesn’t inspire you to tie your sneakers today, I don’t know what will!  The sun is finally beginning to shine, so with the new season, try something new and experience this satisfaction by putting meaning behind those miles!  With the support of your team members, coaches, and mentors, we will get you from the couch to the finish line!
