HI Guys,

you may not remember but i was in the middle of training for my first HIM when my DR found a tumor on my right kidney. it turned out to be cancer so i had surgery and lost 25% of my kidney. Well here i am 4 months after my surgery and ready to tackle my first sprint TRI this weekend. i hope everyone is having a great summer and i will let you know how it goes.

My heart goes out to you and I can't wait to hear how it goes for you.  Actually, it probably doesn't matter how this race goes other than the fact that you are in the game and living life.  I was there too with a very nasty sarcoma that was wrapped around my left kidney and large intestine.  Much surgery, radiation, and chemo.  God gave me healing and a second chance.

 

What a blessing it turned out to be as one develops a heightened appreciation for the roses along the path.  I pray you will smell them all.  Good luck.

I have always been an athlete, growing up playing team sports like basketball and soccer. I also ran in a couple of 10K races every year, so I had no reason to worry about running a 5K...right?

I went into the pool area (as this was a pool swim) and got body marked. That's when it hit me that I was there to race - this was not a clinic.

I never imagined that 350 yards broken down into 7 REALLY long lanes would be so big! I gasped out loud and told Grady that maybe I had underestimated the swim.

I couldn't believe that my splits kept getting lower! I started to run harder after I passed the "5 km" sign and picked a few people that I wanted to pass.
