Surviving cancer nearly 8 years ago has been one of my life's greatest accomplishments. It literally almost killed me, but it only made me realize my true strength! Everyday I count my blessings - my health, my family, My Creator, my senses & all 4 limbs!

Fairly new to the world of running, I'm ready to go from a "rookie" to "rockstar" runner. Planning to use self-hypnosis ( the mind is stronger than the body!) & good old- fashioned sweat & tears to get me there.

So, this year's primary outcome: to RUN like I've NEVER run before. Beat my best times & all the while reminding myself that the only person I should compete with is who I was yesterday. As Tony H. has said, " Do your best & forget the rest." Good-bye, rookie, Hello, ROCKSTAR! :)

Many thanks, SP friends, for your continued support, inspiration, & motivation! It means more to me than you'll ever know.
Best wishes & God speed! x o x o.

Thank you for your kind words on my blog!
I really appreciate that!!

I think it's my own mind that does the most damage. I need to stop worrying so much about things, the what if's and how I can make things better that aren't bad.
One day at a time :)
