As an ovarian cancer survivor, I will race in 50 triathlons in all 50 states by 50-years-old to raise $100,000 for ovarian cancer research. This campaign is self inspired, self orchestrated and 100% self funded. In addition, all in-kind donations are turned into cash donations by me in the same name of the person who donates. I race for women who have lost their battle, women undergoing treatment and women yet to be diagnosed.

Please help with even a $10 donation!

8 Down, 42 To Go

The title might intimidate some folks but not me! The way I look at it, I have 16% of my goal completed. What a gorgeous day and what a great event. I didn't get a podium finish, although my friend Pamm placed 3rd in her age group. Slightly disappointed as I was getting pretty used to winning but the field was deep and FAST! I absolutely went the fastest I could and have no regrets with my efforts. Results are not posted yet but I am pretty sure I placed in the top 5. Norwalk CT was a lovely venue and as the race is very well established, it went off without a hitch. We got some great press on this one (newspapers and News12) so hopefully we get some donations to follow. LOTS of $5 and $10 donations is what we need. The microphone strapped to me during my set up was a little wierd. I told the camera man that I had to take it off to go to the bathroom... he understood. Lots of footage; should be interesting to see the final product when it is released tomorrow. Will try to post it for all to see, as it is broadcast in CT only. Mellow week ahead because the BIG SHOW is next weekend. New York City, Olympic distance, and all the Big Apple has to offer. But for now, it's time for some vanilla ice cream and an early night.
