TNT – Spring / Summer Season

Since joining the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training 2 years ago to run my first marathon I have stayed on in some capacity each season and run several local events.  Time has come to undertake one of their biggest national events again so I am lending my legs to raise money to fight blood cancer.

During the next 5 months I will be training to run the Rock-n-Roll Marathon in San Diego and working hard at fund raising for TNT.  Please take a minute to help!

To read more or donate on-line you can visit my secure site.  Donations can also be made by checks made out directly to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or simply LLS and mail to my home address.

Dan Cummings – 35 Sheffield Road,  North Haven, CT  06473

Since I have been a mentor with TNT for several seasons I was able to sign on for this event a little early.  If you would like information about joining the Team in Connecticut or one of the other chapters around the country let me know.



TNT – Connecticut Fall Season 2009

It is that time again as one TNT season winds down and another is about to begin for the Connecticut Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training.   In a few weeks I will be doing  the Fairfield Half Marathon for the third time.  My first was on my own and last year I ran with TNT after the Rock-n-Roll Marathon in San Diego so my legs were not quite ready for the Fairfield hills.  Hopefully this year will be cooler less humid day.

After Fairfield my running schedule starts back up for the fall events. This season I was planning to run the Marine Corps Marathon but my name was pulled in the lottery so I will be running through the 5 burrows in the New York Marathon instead of heading to our nations Capitol.   


If you have any questions about TNT feel free to email me, and if I cannot answer your question I will put you in touch with someone that can.   Fall is a great time to run in New England so my plan is to follow the Marine Corps Marathon training schedule,  Run the Hartford Half with TNT and hop a train into the city for the New York Marathon on November 1st.  Sign up today and have some fun on the run!

Attention K-Mart Shoppers: Save at THE GAP

Yes… After all these years I still recall the advertising done by K-Mart for their Blue Light Specials. It was a great marketing gimmick for a store that did not survive in Connecticut.

THE GAP on the other hand including their affiliate stores BANANA REPUBLIC and OLD NAVY have done well offering value to consumers. In an effort the help stimulate your purchasing power the Give & Get event will be offered for the next 4 days giving you 30% off purchases and they will donate 5% of the amount you spend to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Just print the coupon and shop at one of the participating stores between March 12-15, 2009.

TNT – 2009 Connecticut Spring Season

As the end of the year approaches I am looking forward to another season with the Connecticut Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training.   This year my role will not be that of a fundraising participant but instead volunteering as a Mentor to help new members achieve their goal of raising money for research and crossing the finish line of their chosen event.

My first exposure to TNT came in January when I attended an information meeting.  The year prior I had run my first distance event on my own  at the Fairfield Half Marathon and since I planned to run again I thought it would be beneficial to hear about the coaching provided by the Leukemia Society.

Well.. at that meeting I decided to raise the bar and run the big one!   I committed to run the Rock-n-Roll Marathon in San Diego.  The Team experience opened my eyes to a whole new level of running and I stayed with the group to run Fairfield and Hartford.

Next month a series of informational sessions will begin the recruit members for the Spring Season.  Events include Running, Cycling or a combo of the two plus a Triathlon to add a little swimming.
