So, I took a bit of a break. This summer has been nothing like I planned it to be. My Dad was diagnosed with Kidney and lung cancer about 8 weeks ago. We have been traveling to Boston almost once a week for appointments,surgeries and treatments. Suddenly my life has been turned upside down.
But on a more positive note, I have signed up to do a 5k on October 8th to support my Dads battle with cancer. It is called the Dempsey Challenge and is sponsored by Patrick Dempsey who grew up in Maine as well. His Mom is a cancer survivor and he know has a partnership with a local hospital. They provide a free center for hope and healing called The Dempsey Center. I only have a few weeks to train, and am not a runner, so I am feeling a lot of pressure. Please keep positive thoughts coming my way. I am back on the healthy train
