    Don’t forget to get you boobs checked, ladies! 
Last year I had a bit of a scare. They made me come back and do extra scans and a sonogram. Today I got the all clear and do not have to return for another year! It gives me peace of mind to know all is okay. Also happy to only go once a year because OUCH. 😉

    My next leg started at sunset, and I saw Gretchen again.  This leg was only 4.8 miles,  and I felt like I was flying.
*
My friend Catherine from Stroller Warriors Pearl Harbor was volunteering at the exchange!  So good to see a friend!
*
Might have tried to sleep before my next leg at just before midnight.  That one was hilly! Luckily #Ieathillsforbreakfast, and I crushed that 5.26 miler.
*
Lots of cheering and little sleep, my fourth leg was easy peasy 3 miler,  after getting to drive our 15 passenger van to deliver a sock and anti-chaffing tape to our current runner,  Claire.  My 3 miler ended in a sprint out, in which I may have yelled, "Out of the way!" to some bystanders and possibly another runner..... #ImsorryforwhatIsaidatmile30
*
Only a short break until my next leg, 4.3 with half being a giant hill!  But the finish at the bluff was worth it!
*
Only one runner before my last leg, 8.6 miles with crazy hills. My legs didn't work the first mile,  but luckily I met an older dude who totally got me through with his encouragement.  After that leg, my teammate had to pull me up the hill to the van. But I got to mark my last leg box on the van!
*
A lot of walking and cheering and Trader Joe's for food,  and we finished all 36 legs,  right on schedule.
*
After some bad directions my friend Stacy from Hawaii met me at our hotel for In and Out!
*
Then home in the morning, with a long layover, fittingly in San Francisco, where I was born!
*
PS my row in the van looked like an ad for
#nathanhydration, lol. Although I had to switch to my old pack,  the sizing on the new one isn't the same and it was chaffing badly. Boo.

We are Ragnarians.....we believe....sleep is overrated.
*
What a whirlwind weekend! Flew into LA, my brother in law picked us up, and we had dinner and dropped us off at hotel.
*
Early to bed, early to rise.
*
3:15am wakeup, on my birthday!
*
Our van picked us up at 4am, and off to the start we went.
*
I was leg 3, with almost 9 miles for my first leg, it was almost flat, and I crushed a 830 pace the whole way,  except for crosswalks, so many crosswalks.
*
Saw my friend Gretchen at that exchange!
*
Time for donuts in the van.
*
I got to meet the creators of the #Fbomb!  They even had the logo tattooed!
*
My next leg was so hot hot hot, but another 9 miles and a hard hill crushed,  I kept a great pace and even passed some faster people on the hills.
*
Time for Elevated Legs, in the back of the van, and my free Starbucks drink,  I went big!

    Chemo Round #2 of the red devil 😉 Bonny baby right with me all the way 😘😘 The chemo and breast care nurses are all amazing and help make this easier as do my Onc and surgeon. 
Everything is going really well, exercise is keeping me in a great place physically and mentally, this is key to making it work ‘just smash on’ but of course I don’t feel any guilt of an afternoon on the couch either from time to time because this is also necessary to recover 😉☺️ Thank you for your support, messages, pics, jokes and comments👌ya’ll rock our world 😘🤘🏻 @bcnapinklady

    I struggled with what to say or even to post anything on #worldcancerday but then I reconsidered.
•
Before all of this cancer stuff I never thought it was a possibility for me. I was sure the lump I found was a cyst and so was my doctor. I was a “healthy” 33 year old. Breast cancer does not run in my family. I eat mostly paleo and work out 5 days a week. Not me... no way!
•
But cancer doesn’t discriminate, it doesn’t care who you are, your age, what you eat or your family history. Please take care of yourself. Be your own advocate and if something doesn’t feel or look right get it checked out. Your LIFE depends on it.
•
Myself and those closest to me will never be the same and this battle is far from over. But one thing I know is this. Cancer won’t win!

    LAST CHEMO!!! #getmeoutahere Massive thanks to all the truly fabulous mates who have loved and supported me through this mess and my excellent fella and kids and mum and fam who have put up with a lot from me in the last few months. Thanks also to the awesome staff at @petermaccancercentre . I have one more minor surgery and radiation to go which feels like nothing in comparison to the horror of chemo. Let me know who wants a bubbles with me in a few weeks time when I’m over this round. I’m pretty keen to celebrate. 💃 #getyourboobschecked

    So last week I went in for a routine “hey your 40 years old mammogram”

Thinking we would be in and out, TJ and I had plans Friday afternoon. 
After over 2 hours at the Drs, I was told you need to have a needle biopsy.....
My whole world just stopped and I could not believe what I just heard. 
I was determined to get my biopsy that day, and I am so thankful to Windsong Radiology for squeezing me in that afternoon. 
My results came in this morning and TJ and I are so relieved that I do not have breast cancer and only have to return in 6 months for another Mammogram. 
Please ladies, go get your boobies checked, make the call and schedule your appointment. 
I would be happy to go with anyone who needs support 💗

    This is a wellness Wednesday reminder —- Get Checked!! All women can get breast cancer, even those with no family history. The best protection is early detection.

    First mammogram ever. I’m almost 46. @natashaswinter ‘s post about her recent diagnosis scared the shit out of me. Actually, her post and encouragement to get checked got my ass to the doctor, who actually referred me to get a mammogram. She couldn’t believe I’d never had one. So GET CHECKED. It was quick and easy (mostly bc my boobs are small 😂😂😂) #breastcancerawareness #getchecked #mammogram #womenshealth

    Howdy to my friends and followers 😉 I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything. I’ve just been dealing with a medical situation and spending time with my kids. With the oldest still training it took me awhile to share with him.  I guess for that full story of this picture started twenty two years ago when I was pregnant with the twins and my doctor found a lump in my breast. The doctor did a biopsy and marked the spot with the titanium🎗ribbon that you can see in the bottom of the picture, thankfully it was benign.  Six weeks ago I went in for my annual mammogram and a few days later I was called back for an ultrasound, more mammograms, and a biopsy, where they found a lump and put in another ribbon🎗 in the circle. Thursday I had the other weird looking device placed to guide the surgeon on what area to remove. Tomorrow I will be having my lumpectomy and they will be taking this still questionable area out. I will hopefully find out whether it is benign or malignant by the end of November. 
Please keep my little family in your thoughts and send us some positive vibes.

    Wellness Wednesday 
Breast cancer awareness was last month. One month isn’t enough. * About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12.4%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. * For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer. * Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. * About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. * The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older). 💕💕💕💕💕💕 September 24 I received the call. After a routine mammogram I was called back for a follow up due to calcifications on both breasts. Most often these are nothing to most women, for me this year they were confirmed cancerous in my left breast. 
I am lucky lucky tho, I caught it early. What I have is non-invasive - meaning it is contained in my duct and hasn’t spread. It is treatable with a lumpectomy and radiation, no chemotherapy.

Many women are not so lucky.  Many women don't go for their annual mammogram --- like exercise and eating healthy they have lots of dumb excuses for not doing it. "I don't have the time." "It hurts." "My mom never went and she was fine." etc etc etc or dumb dumb dumb

I almost used one of those excuses to miss mine this year.  I almost cancelled because I didn’t want to take time off work after being placed in a new position and was in training.  I am so thankful that I didn't because in a year my story would have been very different. 
I am lucky. I am strong. I will be ok. 
If I can't motivate you to take care of yourself with my workouts and my more often than not heathy food choices, I hope I can motivate you with this post. You only have one life - don't cut it short because a little test hurts or takes you out of work or is hard to schedule in to your busy schedule.
