This site was originally started to share my journey to a fitter, thinner, and possibly even, faster me. Having moved back to the south after living in New England for many years, I had gained quite a bit of excess weight and needed badly to get back into shape. 

Being a runner/marathoner, I wanted desperately to lose the weight and to start training for another marathon. 

However, I have recently hit a temporary road block on that road to my next marathon.

Yes-I ran headfirst into a diagnosis of breast cancer. There. I said it. I HAVE BREAST CANCER.

So, for the time being, this site will be dedicated to the fight that I intend to win over this disease. I'll be sharing my thoughts, feelings, and insights as I go through this journey. 

I am hoping that by sharing this journey, I might be able to in some way, help someone else who has had their life turned upside down by a cancer diagnosis.

Please check back regularly for updates on my progress.

I also hope to help raise breast cancer awareness. After all, I'm not alone--1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Together, we can ensure better odds for future generations of women.


Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.
