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!

2nd Place but Photos to Follow

So it's about 9 pm and I just got in from my Las Vegas, NV race. It started at 4:45 in the afternoon which is about the weirdest thing. But it's Vegas and everything operates on a different time schedule. The event was called the Showdown at Sundown and it was by far the HARDEST race I have done but also the PRETTIEST. And guess what? I took 2nd place in my age group. I totally rocked it!
This is state #10 and my first race of the season. I am thrilled with the results, of course, but more important, I am thrilled with the way I felt during the race. The winter blues of New York had me worried that perhaps, I was not ready for today. But I felt strong and had a really good time. I caught up to 2 waves ahead of me on the swim, only 1 person passed me on the bike and the run was strong as well. I had a little "issue" on the run though. The turn-around was not clearly indicated and there were 3 races happening concurrently. I wound up running past the turn-around and ran into the longer race. Bottom line... I ran an extra 5 minutes that I didn't have to. And I still took 2nd place... imagine that?!
I am still in Vegas and don't come home until Monday so I will try to post my video and photos then. Suffice it to say, I had a blast!
