My team – my friends

I thought I’d show you some of my team photos from the San Diego Rock ‘n Roll marathon weekend. This is the Austin team (South Central Texas chapter of Team in Training).

I found some of my best friends in this team. Nothing makes you bond more than sharing our personal moments, raising funds for a great cause together and sweat like hell together.

During the inspiration dinner, John Bingham – a friend of Team in Training – gave his speech. He is always fun to listen to. My favorite quote of this night was something like this:

“You are not getting value for money if you finish the marathon in under 3 hours. You have 7 hours to finish, use it. Get your money’s worth.”

I leave you with this today and some photos of my Austin team.

  1. Love the pics! And I really like The Penguin. I have a coffee cup with his quote: “The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.” Very cool that you got to meet him!

  2. Awesome pics, seems like you had a great time and you have a great team to run with!

    Oh man, I get so choked up over Team in Training – they just do so much good. Thanks for being a part of such a wonderful group. Lymphoma survivors like myself have so many hardworking fundraisers, like you, supporting us, working towards cures and better treatments, and just sharing that love and positive energy that really gets you through the hardest of times.

    Amazing stuff here!

    • Thank you. If you ever feel like running, cycling or doing a triathlon, check out your local chapter. You’ll love them. And inspiring survivors like you make me come back again and again! 🙂

      • That’s sweet of you to say, glad I can help motivate =)

        I was on a team when I was in North Florida… I may look into it again. The fundraising was soooo intense, though. I’ll admit that aspect was hard for me.
