Yesterday was the big day for the Team In Training Montauk century for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It was a beautiful, sunny day on Long Island.
I completed the 102 miles in 6 hours, 2 minutes. The only bump in the day was about 45 minutes lost to a blown tire which I had to replace at a local bike store in the lovely little town of Bellport. Otherwise, from there on out it was a smooth ride with my amazing TNT teammates to Montauk. In all, our small group from the New York City chapter raised over $104,000 at last count thanks to the extremely generous support of friends, family and colleagues and will be used to help accelerate cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma and bringing increased hope to the patients and families who are battling these diseases. My donors and I ended up bringing in $3,060!
