In her own words, ” I never knew why I started training for the 1/2 marathon or tri’s. I would actually say to myself during tri’s “why are you doing this to yourself?”, but I just kept on doing it not knowing why. The minute my doctor said the words “Highly suspicious and its probably cancer” I knew exactly why. I had been training for this to Fight like a Triathlete and beat cancer. I have only done Sprint Triathlons but this next year I will be doing my own version of an Ironman and I WILL finish and I WILL win.”
