Lets fight Cancer!

OK I am taking on a new challenge!

OK guys, Its been a few years but its time to step back into the ring.  My dad is recovering from a recent repeat bought of cancer.  Knock on wood, he is doing well.  But this is his 4th time at it.  He survives because of all the good work done by researchers over the years.  So I am doing my part.  I am doing the NYC triathlon with TNT ( Team in Training) to help raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

I started triathlon in 2006, with my first triathlon being the NYC TRI, and I did it through TNT.  Well the battle continues against cancer and it time for me to throw my hat in the ring.  I cant really do much for my pops other than support.  But I CAN help the people that are doing something about it.  I can raise money for more research.

First Group session

Well yesterday I finished my first group session for TNT.  This year I have joined them as a mentor for their NYC Triathlon.  In part I did this to regain my love for the sport.  I still dig triathlon but my life has been so complicated this past year that I had no room.  But I need to get back in shape, this past year I gained 15 lbs!!!

However going top the gym simply to workout is not for me.  I need a goal.  So I decided to go back to where I started triathlon.  Through TNT training for the NYC triathlon, along with my coworkers in the company team.

I guess its working...I came out of training thinking I need to get a new bike :)  Guess I am feeling the tri fever again hehe
