CNN Fit Nation: 2013 Triathlon Challenge
1yr Cancer Free- Listen To Your Dreams
My husband owns a ski and snowboarding shop and I would describe him as a very outdoorsy man. My eleven year old step son is extremely athletic, he surfs, skis, runs, hikes, plays soccer, football, basketball and baseball. I feel like I can’t keep up with my family and I’m being left behind. When I was diagnosed I was in the best shape of my life. Thank god because it helped with my recovery. I need to get a better work like balance. I work for a company whose brand is wellness in the workplace and I don’t live our brand. I need this support and goal for my wellbeing. My sister was also diagnosed this year with the BRCA2 gene and has followed the preventative path. She encouraged me to submit my story. I would love for you to select both of us. She lives in Atlanta Georgia and I live in Los Angeles. I know this challenge is exactly what I need to get me back on track. I’ve always said that my cancer journey has been a gift and if I’m selected this would be the biggest gift. It all started out with a dream and this is the next dream I need to conquer.
