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!

Something New

One of the things I like about the sport of triathlon is the way I can dissect the individual sports and my performance in each.  When race results are posted you can see where you ranked in each of the three legs (swim, bike, run) and each of the transitions (T1 and T2), with a final overall ranking.  Digesting this information makes it apparent which of the sports you are best at and which needs the most improvement. On any given year, I am better at one than the other.  Usually the cycling is my best but not always; it used to be the run.  This year I have put a lot of emphasis on my swim training and have definitely seen the results.  But of course, like everything's a balancing act and usually when one sport improves, another suffers.

In an effort to boost my running performance, I just completed a seven day intensive.  Running each day with a specific goal in mind, I am attempting to jump start myself out of the plateau I've been on for a while.  Today I take a day off from running and see what the results are tomorrow.
