I am hoping to do an Oly this season, and this race appeals to me in every way. I am waiting for the TNT people to contact me about training- spoke to them last summer. Wonder how much funds need to be raised?

My sister did the TNT 100 mile bike ride in Tahoe last spring, said it was the experience of a lifetime.

If any of you are looking to do your 1st Olympic Distance tri, look to doing this one through Team in Training. You would be raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society which, over the years, has been instrumental in not only finding cures for blood cancers but for all types of cancers. It's a wonderful program, guaranteed to help you accomplish that goal of an OLY tri. And if you live out of the area, your fundraising efforts will get you the trip paid for, including airfare, lodging, and 1-2 dinners. My husband is thinking of mentoring for this race (he's on the board for LLS). It should be a great event!
