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 Shift In Perspective

Up until this very race, this very state, people have asked me, "How many states have you completed?"  For some reason, there's been a shift.  Now I am asked, "How many states do you have left?"  Isn't that the most exciting turn of the English language???!!!!
I know it sounds kinda silly but counting UP has taken several years and was psychologically harder.  Counting DOWN seems like more fun and will certainly go faster.  So with South Carolina on the horizon for this weekend, there will be 16 states left upon completion.  Out of curiousity (since I was obsessing about numbers) I decided to count how many triathlons I have done in TOTAL.  South Carolina will be #52.  Now that's a big number.  So I've decided I want to meet 52 people this weekend to spread the message about ovarian cancer and early detection.  Why not?
