Anne Erwin Sotheby’s International Realty Sponsors Nation's Triathlon to Fight Leukemia

Posted by Emily King — September 4, 2008

I am racing in the Nation’s Triathlon on Sept. 14, 2008. The Olympic-distance race will include a one-mile swim in the Potomac River, 25-mile bike and 6.2-mile run past our Nation’s capital. I will be one of thousands of individuals from around the world, racing to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I am prepared, mentally and physically, and have been training for over three months.Anne Erwin Sotheby's International Realty logoAccented by moments of pure inspiration, grace, wonder, and the occasional fear-inducing close call, this journey has been unforgettable. I was featured in the local newspapers. I learned how many individual’s lives are affected by leukemia and lymphoma. I raised $3,200 in 9 days and am close to my goal of $5,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I planned and hosted an epic reggae-night with a late night limbo contest. I biked 600+ miles along the amazing coastline of Maine and New Hampshire. I was almost run over by a motor boat. I had a cigarette thrown out of a vehicle, burning my leg. I had a near run-in with a silver Lexus from Massachusetts.All of this, and I haven’t raced yet!Please view my website, www.fightbloodcancer.com (best viewed with Internet Explorer), to make a donation, and view my updates, training log, and photos.Thank you for your support.Many thanks to all of those who have already supported me, the community of York, Maine, and beyond.
