Welcome to my blog! I have never blogged before now, so please excuse my ignorance...I am learning. A lot has happened over the last few months and I am having a difficult time keeping everyone up to date. This is the easiest way I could think of to remedy that problem. Here we go...
In August 2012, I quit my job. I had worked at the same accounting firm for 12 years prior and was leaving to pursue my passion...personal fitness training. I had finally completed my certification in January 2012 and slowly worked towards leaving a job I thoroughly enjoyed for a job where I could help people in a different way. I wanted to show my community how to be healthy!
Towards the end of 2012, I began training for my first half marathon. I completed it on December
30th. I felt GREAT!!! No aches, no pains, no problems, just pure joy! Then in January, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. There were so many things going through my mind. How could this happen to me? I eat healthy, live healthy and have no risk factors. I am too young to have... Could the tests be wrong? Am I having a bad dream? How do I tell people? What do I do now? On the outside, I sobbed. On the inside, I felt surreal. People walking by me, living life. This cannot be real. There were people all around yet I have never felt so alone.
