Join TeamCindy 2011 and race around the world

By Skip

As many of you know, in June when I compete in the Escape From Alcatraz triathlon I will be racing for TeamCindy.  Just to refresh you on what TeamCindy is all about,  TeamCindy honors the life of Cynthia Lynn Sherwin and promotes widespread public awareness of the dangers of a ruptured brain aneurysm – the sudden and silent killer that took her life and the lives of thousands of others each year. Cindy was a dedicated athlete, marathoner and triathlete. She was struck down at the young age of 33 while training for her first Iron man, Lake Placid 2007.

TeamCindy enables and encourages athletes to participate in elite endurance events in Cindy’s name and to raise awareness and money to continue the fight against this deadly disease through The Brain Aneurysm Foundation.

TeamCindy was founded in 2008 when one athlete participated in the Ford Tempe Ironman in Cindy’s honor. Every year since, a growing number of TeamCindy athletes have participated in key endurance events throughout country. For 2011, TeamCindy has secured a total of 24 slots to date, including four slots in the Coeur d’Alene Ironman and five slots in Escape from Alcatraz in San Francisco, the Lake Placid Ironman, the London Triathlon in London, England and the Nation’s Triathlon in Washington, DC.

TeamCindy continues to expand throughout the US and abroad in order to fulfill its mission to fund research into the early detection and screening of brain aneurysms. We invite you to contact us and become a member of TeamCindy.

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
