Got Platelets?

Those who know me and my triathlon habit know that the part of the race I loathe is the run. I’d be much better ending a race moving large rocks or chopping down a tree than running any distance. 200 to 205 pounds is a bit of a load to rumble down the road with.

So what am I doing this year? I’m training to run a half marathon in May. I still plan on doing three or four Tris this year but this Cleveland Marathon is special. I’ll be running as part of Team Stephanie in honor of Stephanie Lufkin – our granddaughter who we lost last May to complications associated with the blood disorder ITP.

I joined team ITP as a memorial to Stephie and I’ll be wearing this gear during all my races until it is threadbare. Take a couple minutes and check out Stephie’s page. Then if you’d like feel free to become one of my sponsors.

Where do I sign up for the platelets?

You have to get tested to see if you are a candidate for giving platelets.

Here is a link explaining the process.
