10th Anniversary Marathon

I was beyond disappointed to not get selected in the New York City Marathon lottery, but I am excited to announce I will be competing in my 314th marathon at this event in October to celebrate both breast cancer awareness month and my 10th anniversary as a cancer Survivor!!! Can’t wait!!!!🎀🎀

Tuesday, March 19, 2019


I sometimes have a hard time remembering what my life was like before this cancer journey began. It has been 10 years of some unbelievable opportunities and amazing experiences! It was an awesome goal to complete my 300th marathon over 2 years ago, but my upcoming 10th anniversary as a cancer survivor this October is going to be a huge celebration as well!! I am in this fight until the final round!!

I don’t think I have an ounce of Irish in my blood, but I do feel pretty lucky! Lucky to be living this life surrounded by great friends, lucky to be living in this great city, and lucky to be getting closer to celebrating 10 years cancer free!!! Happy St Patrick’s Day!!! ☘️☘️

EWU Senior Day

Senior Day yesterday for these four remarkable young ladies here at EWU! It has been an honor and privilege to have been a small part of their careers here at EWU! When I was invited into their locker room 4 years ago to share some inspiring words with them at a practice I had no idea how much I would come to admire these amazing young ladies!!!! Congrats Amira, Alissa, Baylee, Kapri, and Coach Wendy on all your success here at Eastern!

312th Marathon Finish

Finished my 312th marathon today at the Rock n Roll Arizona Marathon in Phoenix. This was my first marathon to complete 9 years ago after breast cancer so I truly believe if I continue to return here each January and cross this specific marathon finish line, then cancer will never catch up to me again!!!
