Cancer sucks. All of us have lost a loved one to this disease. All of us. I’ve lost 5 friends in 4 years. I’ve lost aunts, uncles, and grandparents to cancer. In the past I would be heartbroken and move on. But losing 3 close friends in two years kept the anger and pain brewing long enough that I wanted to do something about it. I’m figuring this out as I go and I’m inviting you along for the journey.

I’m training for a triathlon in honor of the friends I have lost. In honor of all of us who have lost friends and family to cancer. Mind you, I’m about 60 pounds overweight right now. I’m in the worst shape I’ve been in years. So I’m starting at the very beginning. I’ve done 6 sprint triathlons. I hiked the Inca Trail in 2016. But when I turned 50, I let everything go. Now it’s time to get up and do this again. I’ve done it before.
