TEAM In Training “preview party” at the Hard Rock Cafe – Hollywood

Hard Rock - HollywoodI registered into the TEAM In Training program a few weeks ago by speaking with one of the organizers at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society over the phone.  I gave them my credit card for the very modest registration fee and the deal was done.

Although the staff member told me a lot of information…I was sure that I didn’t know everything I needed to.. so I jumped at the chance to meet the staff and volunteers at tonights “Preview Party” at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood.

I was so glad I went as that gave me an opportunity to meet with many of the coaches, mentors and other volunteers who will be supporting me throughout my marathon training program.   I cannot wait for the training to commence.

I found out a number of things I didn’t know before tonight,.

  • I guess it is a little unusual for participants to set their own personal goal for fundraising above the required minimum of $2,200 (I have committed to raising $10,000).  I am cool with that.. hopefully it will be even more (with your help).
  • The hotel in San Diego is provided as part of the whole package – which is pretty darn awesome.  Although I was told when I registered that LLS reserves a whole hotel for the 6000 or so participants … I still thought  I would be paying the hotel charges.   Cool!!
  • TEAM In Training is abbreviated to TNT … for obvious reasons.
