Hello guys, it's me, Megan. Before I started this whole Mean Baby/motherhood journey, I was a pretty serious cyclist. I was cycling every day and didn't have a care in the world when signing up to do 75/100 mile rides.
Daylight savings meant nothing to me. I would ride in daylight or night. Swerving between the downtown lights of Austin and hoping on Mopac to get in a good mileage combined with hills.
Time was mine.
Since then, time has made me it's b*tch. I have none of it. I indulge in the daily coffee and fast food cravings because, well, it's easier. Working until 5:30, picking up baby, making dinner and prepping for the next day is rough. Throw in daily chores that my mother no longer takes care of and I'm ready to call it a night at 10PM.
But I think, mentally, I'm finally ready to make time for myself.
.Team In Training is a wonderful organization that has happily agreed to get me in shape. Remember when I rode 79.4 miles in the Hill Country Ride for AIDS like it was nothing? AH, 2010.
Now, I plan to do that again - just swim prior, bike less and run after. You see, I'll need some work on these things but don't worry, I have that covered.
What I could use your help with is fundraising for a great cause. I’m participating in my first ever triathlon as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.
Please consider making a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures. If you shared with a friend or two, that would not hurt either.
And by all means, if you or a loved one has been affected by these diseases, please reach out. I will be happy to ride in their honor.
