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!

Hills, Hills and More Hills

Just back from Ireland and boy oh boy, are my glut muscles sore! I live on the south shore of Long Island and it is very flat. It's the beach, after all. I frequently go up to Westchester to train and do some hill work. But it isn't with any consistency or very frequently. Having just been in Ireland for a week, with no access to a bicycle or water to swim, I committed to work my running discipline. I did three 10Ks while there and I am still feeling the effects of it. County Wexford is all hills.... long, winding hills.

For those of you unfamiliar with anatomy, the gluteal muscles are the part of your anatomy that you sit on. There are three of them (maximus, minimus, medius) and according to my anatomy books, my glut medius is the source of the grimace when I sit. I keep telling myself, it's all good. There is that "good pain" that comes from training, right?

Off for a 40 mile bike ride with my friend today. Pristine weather and a good route mapped out. It should be lovely.

Happy Independence Day to all!
