Contribute To My Cause By CLICKING HERE!
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!

What's A Brick?

A brick is when you put two of your sports together and perform them back-to-back in training.  It is either swim to bike or bike to run, most commonly the latter.  The idea is to solicit your muscles to do what they will have to do in race conditions.   Bricks are great for training and usually occur on days when you have a tough workout planned.
I decided to make this week a big training week, as it is safely far enough away from race day but close enough to provide a spike in training.  Having not raced for a while I needed a little boost.  Happy to report I am feeling strong and yesterday's brick was successful. 
On the PR front, I have had some good outreach from Hawaii.  There may be some interest in my campaign, all in an effort to educate the women of the islands about early detection and signs and symptoms.  Looking forward....
