I think I have officially lost my mind. Why? Because I have taken up running. Like seriously running. I ran a 5k a few weeks with friends and am running another tonight. I have signed up for about one 5k a month. My goal is a 10k in Novemeber. Yes. I have totally lost my ever loving mind! But, I like having goals. I like having something to work towards. Goals are good. Right? Who would of thought that this would even be a possibility? Three years ago today I was right in the middle of doing my 3rd round of biochemo. Tonight I am getting ready to run another 5k. Wow has my life changed!
One of my best friends and I after the Girls On The Run 5k.
My friend Lisa and I post run. She did awesome! She placed 2nd in her age group! I finished. And thats all that matters! Hahaha!
I am a former Special Education Teacher, turned stay at home mommy. I have two beautiful children. K-man, my son, is 6 and Geebers, my daughter, is 4. I love them more than anything in the world.
Here is my story...
The day my daughter turned 6 months old was the day I was diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma. That day changed my whole life.
After a year long round of chemo, I thought I would be able to live my life cancer free.
Apparently, God has other plans. On February 12, 2010, I was told that my cancer is back.
I am currently in the process of fighting cancer, living my life to the fullest, and being the best mommy and wife that I can possibly be.
Feel free to say a little prayer for us tonight. You can never have to many of those.
