Jim Alfieri’s Team In Training (TNT) story starts in June 2000 with the Mayor’s Marathon; his personal honorees at the time were his brother-in-law, John Duff and team honoree, Josh Gernert. He so thoroughly enjoyed his experience that he asked his manager at the time if “he could do another.” (Her reply was “but of course, you can do as many as you like.”)
The rest is the stuff of TNT legends – Jim has relentlessly lent his time and expertise to the RWC marathon team, completing season after season as a participant, mentor/captain and all-around wonderful team resource.
In early 2011, Jim was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and took a brief break from TNT to undergo treatment. But he wasn’t gone long. Six months later he was back fundraising and training with his TNT family. His dedication to LLS is clearly reflected in his incredible 12-year total – nearly $50,000 raised!
When the new Nike Women’s Half Marathon in D.C. was added to the TNT lineup, it was serendipitous. You see, Jim and his lovely wife, Janet, will be celebrating their wedding anniversary in April (the month of the new Nike Half). Fifty years ago they honeymooned in Washington, D.C. (the event destination). And this TNT event would put Jim’s fundraising total well beyond the $50,000 mark. All great reasons to return to the TEAM, take on the inaugural Nike Women’s Half Marathon in D.C. and enjoy a golden anniversary vacation.
So a toast to Jim and Janet Alfieri – thank you for your support of LLS and TNT all these years and for being an inspiration on many levels. And Happy Anniversary!
