Cancer sucks. I’ve lost 7 friends in 5 years to cancer. This continued grief kept the anger and pain brewing long enough that I wanted to do something about it. So I’m training for a triathlon and raising money for cancer research in honor of my friends and family that I have lost; and in honor of all of us who have lost friends and family to cancer.
I’m about 60 pounds overweight right now. I’m in the worst shape I’ve ever been so I’m starting at the very beginning. In the past, I’ve done 6 sprint triathlons, hiked the Inca Trail, ran two half marathons and completed two MS 150 bike rides from Houston to Austin. And now I want to do a Half-Ironman Triathlon in 2019. It will be difficult but I hope you will join me with your own triathlon and other race to raise money for cancer research!
