272 Marathon Finish!

Finished my 272nd marathon today at the Cape Cod Marathon here in Massachusetts. It was an emotional  finish because this was the last marathon I ran 4 years ago before this breast cancer journey began, so it was a day of coming full circle. It has been a great team of people who have worked hard  to get me here. A very talented  Surgical Oncologist,  Orthopedic Surgeon and all of my amazing friends!  And after I finished I had one thought.....I am going to be alright because I kicked Cancers Ass!
