My grandmother had breast cancer. She was in her 80's when she was diagnosed and she received some pretty awful treatments to try and eradicate it! So I decided that I would take it upon myself to be proactive about my boobs (for a lack of a better way to put it!) Affinity (St. Elizabeth's) has a walk in clinic on Wednesdays. You can literally walk in and get a mammogram. It is simple, it is fast and it did not hurt at all! They even called me the next morning to tell me the results...NORMAL! That is good news for SURE!

The best part of this is since I am so young they will have a base line for my future breast health! Since I do have a history of breast cancer in my family, it is going to be something I take very seriously! It was so simple, I will make sure I get a mammogram at St. Elizabeth's every year. Make sure you tell your friends, sisters and moms to get a mammogram every year!!

My First Half Ironman

I have always thought a half Ironman would be tough...but tough does NOT being to describe it!

SWIM 1.2 miles:
The swim was rough because the waves were really big!!! It was tough to see the buoys and the people around you. I felt a little panicked at one point but told myself I had to get the hell over that and I did (I can be pretty convincing!) Thank goodness because I was thinking the swim would be my favorite part of the day...

BIKE 56 miles:
The bike was GREAT! I actually had a blast riding that course. I felt good, I was NOT too hot and I was passing people! I was super shocked because the bike has not been the easiest thing for me to do so far! It was my greatest worry going into the race...but there was nothing to worry about yesterday!

RUN 13.1
When I got off the bike I felt like I was hit by a wall! Heading out of transition you have to run right up High Cliff Hill (if you have never seen is massive!) It was so much harder than I had ever imagined. My legs did not turn around like I thought they would but I just kept going. The run was a double loop so people were flying past me that were on their final loop! They were soaked from sweat and the heat! It was so hot! I have to say the run was the toughest thing I have ever done it my life! It was beyond words. I have had to dig deep before but this was the deepest I have gone in my life!

Would you do it again...they ask?
I have already signed up for Door County Half Ironman and yes I am going to do it! My goal is to do the race with out feel like I am surviving and feel more like I am soaring!

Congrats to everyone who did the Sprint and the was a hot day and everyone did so good!

Florida 2009
I love traveling... I was just in Florida back in May. See link for some video fun I made. It was a week long vacation so one would think that you would be refreshed and ready to go back to work and can work through the year leaving the possibility of another vacation a year away... I made it three weeks... Three weeks until I want/need another vacation. Call it the stress of the job or just the love of being in a warm(er) climate. Something about being able to sit outside at 8:00 in the morning and it being already 80 degrees just makes me really happy.

It also could be my love for Vegas that I want to go asap. Vegas was triggered because of the movie The Hangover. An exceptional movie that battles Old School and Wedding Crashers in the genre of comedy movies.

Speaking of movies, The Hangover has definitely been the best movie of the summer. Growing up with seven kids, the form of entertainment to keep all of us busy was movies and it carries over today. I'm a big summer movie guru. Wolverine (disappointing), Star Trek (not a treky fan), Angels and Demons (interesting but didn't merit a May release), and Terminator (seriously, an Arnold cameo!) were a mere disappointment and a few steps behind The Hangover. Could also be my love for Comedies. Hopefully Transformers 2 is just as entertaining as the first one.

Well I think that's all I got for the randomness in my head before 8:00. Take care! :)

Robert Pattinson gets attacked by WILD teenagers!

Seriously, I think this would get old! Having people just attack you everywhere you go!?! I really feel bad for the guy! These girls don't EVEN care that he is very uncomfortable! They do NOT care at all! WOW!
