Almost exactly two years ago, I discovered a lump in my breast that turned out to be cancer. It was a strange and upsetting time. Between the numerous assessments, surgery and treatments, I needed to fill the time and a distraction from fear, so I turned to exercise! It really helped to keep my energy levels up during radiation therapy and to recover quickly. It feels wonderful to be celebrating this victory with Her Spirit and completing My First Triathlon. I am sharing this to say thanks to Her Spirit and the incredible women I've met through this program, and also to raise awareness. Breast cancer strikes 1 in 8 women, but early detection and advances in treatment have saved many lives. Check yourselves regularly, don't be afraid, and go out there and be awesome! How apt that our transition row was DD!!
