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.
