"Don't let the fat chick beat you"?

I have been racing for about 5 years now. I am not a typical runner or even triathlete. I fight with serious medical conditions every step of the way, but each step makes me stronger. I have two boys both with special needs and I have learned to chalk that up to making me stronger as well.

It is with sad heart that I must report that lupus has won the battle this year, but trust me when I say the war is far from over! My racing days are not over by any stretch of the imagination. This is just a minor setback that will make me stronger.

Here I go!

Ok, I have fallen into the “endurance athlete” category for going on 4 years now! It started off with the desire to do a triathlon – not an ironman, a regular everyday sprint distance triathlon! Next thing I knew I had at least 6 sprint distance triathlons, 1 olympic tri start (the race was cancelled half way through due to the weather), a half ironman, I have no idea how many races from 5Ks to marathons. I am doing all this with CRPS, hypothyroidism, a messed up knee and the list goes on!
A friend suggested I try the blogging route (training hasn’t been going so well lately) and here I am!
