Rock `n Roll Half Marathon Triathlon Training
SUMMER 2011
2007 after an invitation from my personal
trainer and then TSNW Triathlon Coach Kim
Brasfield. First of all, I had no idea what a
triathlon was. Secondly, once I understood
what it was I was, I was absolutely sure it was
something I could never accomplish. But here
I am five years later having completed four
and planning on my fifth. TSNW has provided
the support, coaching, encouragement and
camaraderie with other cancer survivors
that has made the unthinkable possible. And
rather than a group focused on cancer, it is
cancer survivors focused on being fit and
pushing the envelope of what may have been
unobtainable goals.
Rock ‘n Roll Half
Marathon
BY K AT H RY N W I L L I A M S,
TSNW MEMBER
Thanks to Team Survivor Northwest, I just
walked in my first half-marathon – all 13.1
miles. That’s a small miracle, considering my
physical fitness in early February due to my
cancer treatments and then a bad fall. My
oncologist, Dr. Kristine Rinn, recommended
that I check out TSNW, where I met Monica
Strasen (TSNW Program Manager). She
told me about the many programs and I
started walking with the run/walk group
that prepares for walking and running halfmarathon. With her encouragement, I signed
up for the Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon – but
what was I thinking?!
At first, two miles was my absolute maximum
distance. Gradually 6 miles was almost
more than I could do. Then 10 miles almost
finished me off, and in June, 13 miles almost
wiped me out. Thanks to Monica (and her
red coat), supported by volunteers Mark and
Kit, we were out there almost every weekend,
except for the day it snowed. We learned
about equipment, proper stretching, how
to pace ourselves, and even what beverages
and foods would keep us going in the long
distances.
The day of the half marathon came. I had
a wonderful time. Sure, probably 23,000
participants were faster than I was, but I
finished, with enough energy to run the last
0.1 mile! And there was Monica, patiently
waiting for me.
Because of shoulder issues I swam using the
side stroke, I used my old hybrid bike, and
walked (I hated running) the 2007 Danskin
in the pouring rain. But I FINISHED and left
with a medal around my neck. After the 2008
Danskin I decided it was time to buy a lighter
bike (compliments of my husband!) and get
the shoulder fixed. I bought a new bike in
February 2009, had shoulder surgery in May
2009 (my orthopedic surgeon wrote “You are
a 55-year old triathlete!”) and completed the
Trek Triathlon as a relay completing the bike
and run/walk portions.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. And, yes,
I have registered for another half marathon
and I’m looking for more.

2011 Golf Clinic
BY ALICIA SUPERNAVAGE
TSNW OFFICE MANAGER
We held our benefit Golf Clinic at Newcastle
Golf Club on a beautiful June afternoon.
With fabulous golf professionals, our golfers
brushed up on their putting, driving and
chipping skills. Together, we raised over
$11,000 to support women in their cancer
recovery.
Thank you to all of our donors, golfers and
volunteers who made the event a success!

TSNW MEMBER
The Trek Triathlon 2010 was putting it all back
together and improving my overall performance.
This year I am again pushing myself to gain
confidence in the swim, be a stronger runner, and a
faster cyclist.
What I love about triathlons is the cross training
of three sports. But my favorite leg is the bike. I
have always loved cycling and in the early 1970’s I
was one of the first girls in my high school to have
a three speed bike. In 2005 I went to Austin with
three girlfriends and survivors to participate in the
LIVESTRONG ride – and catch a glimpse of Lance.
I trained on the Burke Gilman Trail and thought
Texas was flat but much to our surprise, Austin is
in hill country. Luckily my two younger brothers
made a surprise appearance to ride support. In
2009 and 2010 I rode the Seattle LIVESTRONG
with my brother Jeff, again as support. But, any
little hill has been my nemesis! So, this year I have
set out to train with TSNW for the RAPSody (Ride
Around Puget Sound). The tiny hills that used to be
the scary hills are now a “piece of cake” and the “no
way” hills like Ames Lake, Inglewood and IssaquahFall City are “doable”!
TSNW has been instrumental in providing a fun
and safe environment to challenge my perceptions
about what I am capable of. At age 58 and a 12year survivor, I believe I’m more physically fit
and stronger than any other time in my life. My
lymphedema on long rides can be a challenge, my
swimming needs tons of improvement, but now I
can ride those hills and running is actually starting to
become something I look forward to!

Kath Gordon’s Story
BY K AT H G O R D O N, T S N W M E M B E R
In 2005, I had just been diagnosed in April,
had surgery in May, and by Father’s Day, just
two months later, was newly moved from outof-state to Port Townsend, still in shock, and
feeling pretty rotten during chemotherapy.
I didn’t know a soul except my son and
daughter- in-law, and knew nobody who’d
walked the cancer journey, as the two friends
I had who’d had cancer lived too far away for
me to be with them during their treatment.
I think I first learned of the TSNW walking
group that fall and went to the retreat
in January at Fort Worden, where I was
overwhelmed at the sight of so many vibrant,
cheerful women all engaged in LIFE. I
remember realizing then that I, too, could
someday be a member of the “healthy and
The mission of Team Survivor Northwest is to support women in their cancer recovery
through empowering programs of physical activity and health education.
wise women” group, even though
it was hard then to keep up while
walking the hills of Fort Worden. The
members of our walking group met
for dinner occasionally and patiently
listened to my fears and loneliness.
They helped me get over the hump of
those early days by normalizing what
I was experiencing, and for that I will
always be grateful.
Now six years later, I am again
participating in the classes (after
a break when I didn’t want to be
having anything to do with cancer,
even a survivor’s class). It is good to
be back among the wise and healthy
women survivors of TSNW.

HELP!
B Y A L I C E TA K E U C H I , T R E A S U R E R
B OA R D O F D I R E C TO R S
If Team Survivor Northwest has made a
difference in your life, now is the time you
can make a difference for TSNW. This
organization has been dedicated to providing
exercise programs at all levels to cancer
survivors without requiring membership
dues or program fees. We have been able
to do so through individual and corporate
donations, a few grants, and a couple of major
fundraising events during the year. However,
in the last few years, like many families
and businesses, TSNW has faced financial
challenges due to the economic downturn.
This year, the problems are becoming critical.
Donations are down at every level, corporate
giving is down and grants are very difficult to
obtain.
While your individual donations are still
crucial, for those who would like to do more
or do something in lieu of making a donation,
TSNW is encouraging you to “get out there
and help!” We are hoping you will think of
some creative fund raising options to add to
the coffers. You could do this individually
or with other members, especially if you
participate in a TSNW program with women
you see regularly. You could brainstorm for
ideas that would be workable and worth your
time and effort.
In the past, the Mountain Climbing Group
sold baked goods at the Saturday morning
dragon boat practices and t-shirts to TSNW
members. The Dragon Boat team has had
garage sales to raise funds. One supporter
makes beautiful cards and shares the
proceeds with TSNW during the month of
October. We have one survivor who hosts
a fund raising brunch for TSNW on the day
of Race for the Cure. Other members have
mentioned possibilities that range from a
Gear Exchange & Sale, to a Rubber Ducky
race. There must be all kinds of possibilities
that could be fun for you and beneficial to
TSNW.
Honoring the survivor in your life is another
possibility. Simply ask family and friends who
might be wondering what to give you for a
special occasion to donate to TSNW in your
honor. If you don’t really need a bouquet or
another knick knack, honoring you through a
donation would be a wonderful way to help
the many women Team Survivor serves.
Please seriously consider some of these
options. This is your organization and can
use your help. Together, we can do it!

The TSNW dragon boat team had a bake sale
in support of the organization and raised
over $400. It was a terrific example of how
members of one of the programs can organize
a small fundraiser to benefit the whole group.
If anyone else wants to plan something
similar, we learned a few things along the
way. Here are some suggestions:

BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Have one or two people who organize
and coordinate the event.
Choose a location where you will have a
sufficient customer turnout.
If having baked goods, they should
be homemade and packaged for easy
handling.
Ask for donations rather than pricing
items. This avoids having to make too
much change and people actually are
more generous this way.
The mission of Team Survivor Northwest is to support women in their cancer recovery
through empowering programs of physical activity and health education.

BY MONICA STRASEN,
TSNW PROGRAM MANAGER
TSNW recognized early on the importance of
having an offering that would be appropriate
and enticing to women who were either in
treatment, just out of treatment or looking for
a way to get into, or back into, fitness.
Walking has played a major part in TSNW
programming, from gentle walks to more
fitness based walks (Urban Hikes), to
goal specific walk training (half marathon
training).
We are excited that we have been able to
bring back a gentle entry level walk, thanks to
a group of volunteers that are giving back to
TSNW by being walk leaders and organizers
for this program.
So if you are new to Team Survivor, are in
treatment, just out of treatment, or trying to
get a handle on where to start with getting fit,
joining this walk is a great way to get some
exercise at a level that is doable.
This walk is on Saturdays, 9:00am, and
they meet in front of the bathrooms on the
southwest side of Green Lake, next to the
crew house and right by the old Aqua Theater.
We are also looking for people who would be
willing to be a walk leader. This is a rotating
schedule, so you most likely would be asked
to lead a walk about every four to six weeks.
This is a perfect way to give to TSNW, as
we would really like to keep this program
running strong.
For more information about the walks or to
volunteer, contact Monica Strasen, TSNW
Program Manager at [email protected]
