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!

A First For Me and For A Friend

Frigid temps this season and especially this week means that water temps may not even reach 60 degrees. I am racing in TWO states this weekend. NJ on Saturday and MD on Sunday. I have never done two states before and although skies will be clear and air temperature warm, the water will be freezing. The MD race is in a lake so I am not too concerned with Sunday but Saturday's race is at the Jersey Shore and the ocean will take my breath away. Double caps, earplugs and a full wetsuit are highly recommended. More to the point is racing twice in one weekend... I am a little nervous about how my body will respond.
But even more to the point is why I race. My friend Patti just completed her rounds of chemo and I am so happy for her. This weekend is for her and her triumph. I will carry her with me all weekend.
This is why I race.
