On August 28th, I celebrated two years post-chemo. Two years of kicking cancers ass to the curb. Two years of suffering through side effects and living life anyway. What have I been doing in those 2 years…well, let’s see.
Obviously, NOT blogging. LOL!
I RAN my first 5K in 5 years.
I spent a week at Disneyland & Seaworld for Christmas, riding every ride possible. Twice.
I rolled with the neuropathy punches and migrated my business from photography to graphic design, custom apparel and vinyl decals.
I spent a long weekend on the beach with Bryan in Cali, hiking and kayaking and exploring.
I ran my first ever 10K distance, 1 year post chemo.
I bought a new truck, totally on my own.
I RAN A HALF MARATHON! On a brutal course at that.
I ran another 10K. And found out I really love that distance.
Then I ran a two man half marathon relay with a dear friend. So, basically another 10K.
I sold a house. Not completely on my own, but hey, it counts. :)
Climbed a mountain.
Ran my first trail race ever. It was pretty cool.
Got a new tattoo. Check back soonly for the inspiration behind it.
I jumped off the Stratosphere! How freakin’ awesome is that?!
Adopted one kitten.
And ran another 5K.
I’ve also seen several Vegas shows, went to a concert or two, flown over 3800 miles, driven over 30,000 miles, and punched my husband (those military types will get what I’m saying). :) I’m also getting ready to head back to college in January!
All the while, holding down the fort and being the best wife and mom I can be.
Not too shabby for a cancer survivor, I don’t think.
