Well I am back to running with low mileage. I have been trying to protect my feet and I have also been burried in life. Trying to be a grad student, consultant, wife, mom and coach can be tricky...especially during this time.
It has been a long 6 1/2 weeks of radiation for my husband. For those of you who don't know my husband was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer in October and since then our life has been turned upside down. As shocking and scary as it has been we have been blessed by the people who have came into our lives because of it. My hubby is so strong!
Family, friends and the blogging community have been amazing! Miss Zippy (rock star athlete and blogger) told me about Ulman Cancer Fund who serves young adults dealing with cancer. Ulman was great as there is something about cancer that makes you feel alone and lost. Through a few conversations I learned about a huge event that would be raising funds and bringing about awareness. The next thing I know and I part of Rev3 and Ulman as a teammate running across America. WOW~!!
I have had mixed emotions over the past several weeks. Fear, anger, doubt,excitement and renewed strength. In three days I will get on a plane and fly to Oceanside,Ca to begin the journey. I have been RESTING my feet fighting injury. I am not in the best of shape BUT I know that if God has brought me this far that He will indeed carry to the end.
I have stopped asking WHY? I don't know why my hubby is having to endure so much physical and mental pain? The last few weeks of radiation were unbearable watching him hurt. Cancer can be a heavy burden to carry around and at times it feels as if it could crush you. However we are committed to fighting and not letting that happen. So many people have reached out to support us that I am PUMPED and SO THANKFUL that finally we are able to HELP others by participating in the Run Across America.
I will be joining the team from Oceanside to Phoenix and then returning to keep running on TEAM Davis RAA Virtual Team! Thank you so much to all of the bloggers who have reached out saying they will log miles and share more about Ulman for three weeks while the team runs acrosss America!! So cool!
Have you even relied on others during life storms and then had the opportunity to give back?
Please consider donating under TEAM DAVIS to help fight cancer!! More soon....before I head to sunny California!!
