Right after my cancer journey began 8 years ago a close friend gave me this bracelet that is inscribed with one very powerful word “Unstoppable”. It has been on my left wrist with every marathon I have completed and every challenge that I have faced since breast cancer. It reminds me to dig deep and be strong when there is no other option!!!!

I had the pleasure of meeting Gordon, a Park Service Law Enforcement Officer when I visited Washington DC last weekend for my marathon.

Finished my 306th marathon today at the Rock n Roll Arizona Marathon here in Phoenix. This was my first marathon to complete 8 years ago after breast cancer, so it holds a special place in my heart. I truly feel if I continue to return here each January and cross this specific marathon finish line, then cancer will never catch up to me again! Believe!!!
