"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.

Not doing to well

Something is not right, I don’t feel right. My energy level has tanked and my muscles twitches are back and blah, blah, blah. I am hoping I am not going into another flare up, I can’t handle that right now. I took yesterday completely off I didn’t hit play, I didn’t hit the gymlet I did nothing. I am still so tired I can barely keep my eyes opened. I would like to get into the pool for a little while even if I am just kind of floating in the deep end, maybe that will make me feel better, who knows! I have signed up for the spinning class for tomorrow, if I make it, great! If not, such is life. Last flare up I tried to push through it and only made it worse.

Tomorrow is my weigh in, I will be happy to see another pound gone. My eating hasn’t been to bad, but it hasn’t been great either. Last night for dinner I had chips and salsa, that is all that I wanted!

On an entertaining note, I ordered my bike jersey for the century ride, I can’t wait until it comes in. I saw it months ago and figured it was a must get. Well, today I was looking around and saw they only had one size left (luckily nice and big) so I figured I had better order it before its to late… Yes, it is a Sam I am jersey, what else did you expect?


  1. Hope you are feeling better soon! That jersey rocks!!

  2. Hope you're feeling better. Love the jersey - it suits you. I've moved my blog over to another name to raise money for canine cancer awareness. Check it out: http://ontheotherendoftheleash.blogspot.com/
