i started running two months before i started chemo. my running adventure began because someone dared me, but i kept running because i dared myself. cancer has pushed me to my limits time and time again, but it won't any longer. i am pushing back and seeing what my body is truly capable of. i live a lifestyle that makes me happy and enriches my soul. between running, biking, hiking, camping, and skiing, there isn't a season i don't enjoy or adventure i won't take.
my first half marathon was on may 11th 2014, the day after i finished my last round of chemo. i finished it on my feet, which better than I thought I would a year later, i came back stronger and healthier than ever and ran the same course 37 minutes faster.
