Things are Rocking!!

The Austin TNT Big Bend Hike Team 2010 is pounding out the miles, working on their fitness, and raising money to crush cancer!!

The group is starting to gel and get to know each other. We're building relationships and making lifelong friendships! Last week was our Mission Workout, we had our very own Tom Wilkinson told his story and Liz Yankiver played Amazing Grace on her bagpipes. It was AWESOME!! Just more evidence that this is the greatest TNT team and event in the history of ever!!

Our hardworking group has raised over $5,700 in just over two weeks!! That rocks, lots of success and creativity raising money. That's why we do this, the money raised by the team goes to research and patient services. Along those lines, our Honored Teammate Dan has reached a huge milestone! He's in the first stage of remission, which is freakin' awesome! The research that led to the medicine he's taking was funded by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society supported by TNT athletes. That's what it's about!!

Here's the reminder to all my TNT teammates, there is no SAG in Big Bend. If you can't finish a bike ride, a tri, or a marathon, somebody will pick you up and take you home. In Big Bend, there is no free ride. This means the workouts are very important! If you're not making the team workouts, please be doing workouts on your own. This is critical!!

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call me, or email.
