"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.

Another trip to the gymlet and it felt great. Today I did the treadmill I ensured I would not be able to do very much running (the girls didn’t have the support they need for more than short bouts of running) and I enjoyed every last step of it. I put it on Cold Case (yes, I plan my workouts in the gymlet around what is on TV) plugged in my iPod and off I went. Start off at 3.5mph for a few minutes then up to 4 mph; towards the end I went up to 5 for one song, then the last minute I went to a 6. Like I said a nice easy workout. Oh yea, and I had it set on the hilly course.
This weekend we are heading up to Elitch Gardens to celebrate Father’s Day – usually we take my dad to the Renaissance Festival, we decided to do something different this year. Sunday, I am not sure yet. We shall see!
