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.
As if 11 races aren't enough for one season, I had to do my local club race in Oyster Bay this weekend. My "New York race" was completed long ago but this event is so much fun, I couldn't help myself. To make the event more exciting, my buddy KK from Texas flew up and raced with me. She was supposed to join me last year but the hurricane had other plans for us. The weather cooperated this weekend and we had a blast. We took NY by storm with theatre, biking, visiting, walking, ice cream, sightseeing, a team party... and of course, the triathlon. I am exhausted today and would do it all again in a heartbeat. Thanks KK for making the effort. And the best part is I will see her again in two weeks when she joins me in Arkansas. Woo hoo....can't wait.
