Ready to Go!

A lot has happened since my last update, so I thought I would catch you up. First, I spent some time in physical therapy at Shand's PT at University of Florida a few months ago for the slight incontinence when running caused by my surgery last December. It went very well and I had a an awesome PT named Vickie. It helped a lot and after lot's of kagals, cutting out caffeine, I am doing much better, not sure I will ever be 100%, but I refuse to let it be a negative. Also, I recently went to my local family doctor for my annual physical and he gave me a clean bill of health. I was also able to go off blood pressure medicine altogether. I had already cut it in half this past year and now I have eliminated it!! As you probably can tell, I was pumped!

I had a great chance to test all the physical therapy in my training for the half marathon as I ran 200 miles in 12 weeks to prepare. On the evening of October 2nd I surpassed another milestone in my life by completing my first half marathon at the inaugural Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon in Orlando, FL. It's just another wall that was torn down as I live the life of a cancer survivor. Since it was my first I really tried to enjoy the atmosphere and Disney did a great job providing entertainment all along the course. I finished the race in 2 hours 39 minutes and proudly accepted my finisher's medal.

Now its off to tear down the next wall by conquering a full marathon. My training continues and I am excited about the opportunity to wear my Team Winter jersey representing Athletes for a Cure and raising money and awareness for Prostate Cancer, I am READY TO GO!!!

God Bless You!

All the very best to you and your inspirational story. We share footsteps...I was diagnosed at 44 with advanced prostate cancer and have taken my story to the 'net and to offering support to anyone that needs it. It's a different kind of marathon but it's still worth running it. May peace always find you and your family. God Bless

You have a great spirit which is the most important to fight any battle and the one that is in your bag is a psychosomatic disease which needs a lot of fighting.So be brave I am sure you will have better days of health to come.
