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 Reunion of Sorts

Next weekend is my last race of the season in Bermuda. I am being hosted by the SheROX triathlon series and am so excited to be able to join them. SheROX joined with OCRF this past year and has made ovarian cancer their charity. They learned of my campaign and asked me to join their series. Seems like a natural partnership. Especially exciting is that my husband will be joining me on this one. It will be a chance for us to actually see each other. He is a boat captain and his "season" is the summer. Coupled with my aggressive race schedule and it means that not only don't we see each other at home but we are rarely in the same state. I am looking forward to reconnecting.
The state count remains at #31 and even though Bermuda does not represent another state, I am sure I will have an opportunity to spread the message of early detection for ovarian cancer.

A Much Needed Break

Don't be surprised if I go MIA for about a month. I am going into what is called the "off season". Well, truth to tell, not quite yet but a modified version of it. I have one more race in November in Bermuda. This one is important because it is a SheROX event and they have been gracious enough to offer it to me as a way to promote my campaign. But it doesn't "count" because last time I checked, Bermuda wasn't a state. With a modified "off season", I am working at maintaining a balance, remaining uninjured (relatively speaking) and not burning out. I am in this campaign for the long haul and with 31 states behind me and 19 more to go, I want to keep a consistent rhythm. That being said, I plan a 2011 recap post Bermuda and will check in for another post pre-Bermuda. In the meantime, enjoy the transition of the season and all the blessings it brings.
