At It Again!

  In September I will at it again.  I am racing for the cure, but this year is different.  My sisters best friend has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  She (friend not sister) is 31 yrs. old, a wife, and mother of 4 beautiful kids. Lynette is an amazing person who has been part of my sister's world since they were kids. Our whole family has been effected.  Right now we are in limbo waiting for results, but the news so far has been a little alarming.  11 of her 17 lymph nodes they took had cancer. We are still waiting for results from more tests and continue to be hopeful and positive.  She is strong, surrounded by strong family, friends, and  her community. 

For the race I am part of Team Bell.  Being part of a team is new for me.  It feels good to be part of something and share this with others.  My sister won't be able to take part in the race this year.  She is due in August with her 4th baby boy (can't wait)! Also she lives in Vermont, so I am going to race for her as well as myself.  Last year the race was such a positive and moving experience.  I think this next race will be more so.   Off to get ready........

This year it is getting very personal.
