Willing to TRI

Friday, September 24, 2010

Well here I am just about one year since I had yet another knee surgery. But did I just roll over and give up....no!! I am doing my first triathlon tomorrow and I actually feel pretty prepared. I can't run anymore because of those knees, but I will walk the run portion the best I can. In the past 9 years I have had 7 different surgeries including one this past march; this includes a diagnosis of stage 3 breast cancer. I have not only survived but thrived from it all. Six months later I feel pretty fit to get out there again. I have battled my weight my entire adult life, but I have found that maybe I haven't solved my eating habits yet. But, I do love the thrill of competition and feeling successful in my road to being an athlete. Cheer me on!! emoticon
