Team CMT News

Cheryl Monnat and Robert Kearney 

"Be yourself. An original is always worth more than a copy."- unknown

Team Milwaukee
We have our first match.  Team members Cheryl Monnat and Robert Kearney announced their engagement a few weeks ago. They are planning a 2014 wedding since  2012 will be a busy year of competition.  Robert will be doing Ironman Arizonia in November. They will both be doing the Racine Half Ironman in July.
They also plan on Lakefront Marathon in October and the Summerfest and Brewers Half Marathons. I guess the couple that runs together stays together.  Cheryl and Robert were the first two Team CMT members. I remember the first time Robert joined us for a run.  Congradulations Robert and Cheryl.
Cheryl Monnat 2nd place RACC 10 K series
Cheryl Monnat ran the Racers Against Childhood Cancer 10K winter series.  I joined her for the last run on Saturday.  It was my first running event since last June. Not only did Cheryl win 2nd place in her age group for every race, she won 2nd place for her age group for the series.  It was great to see a Team CMT member collecting a series award along with lots of big name runners in Milwaukee.

Team members in Dallas have been busy as well. Member Shelly Kautz ran a 5K St. Pat's weekend as well.
Shelly you look fast and fabulous. Thanks for representing Team CMT!

Member Morgan Johnson has been sponsoring a Team CMT kids group. They will have an event the 2nd weekend in May.

Team member Joyce Kelly has been busy organizing a 5K/10K race for next April. It looks like it is shaping up to be a great event and a major fundraiser for CMT research.

HNF recently published the first issue of their electronic newsletter. Look for it once a month in your email. It will feature articles on research funded by HNF, recipes, a Team CMT article and lots of other fun articles.

Very soon we will be putting up a slide show of Team CMT pictures on the HNF site. So keep sending those Team CMT photos. They are an important part of raising awareness of CMT.

Please keep posting race updates and pictures to the Team CMT facebook site or send them to me. It is great to see you all out there raising awareness.

I am looking forward to a great season of racing, fundraising and raising awareness of CMT in 2013. Thank you to everyone on the team for all your efforts!  You are making a difference!
