Today is a day of reflection for me. Today I ran my first 5K ever. This might be surprising to some people but those close to me know how much I despise long distance running. One year ago I would have never participated in such an event, but my friend and coach Katy Ursta talked me into buying a T25 challenge pack through Team Beachbody. At first I was skeptical of Shakeology, however, it was a requirement to be a part of her support and accountability group. I was ready to change my life so I agreed to buying the workouts and Shakeology. Let's just say I am hooked! Beachbody completely transformed my life from the tired and sluggish mom of 2 young boys to an energetic and fit mom of two very outgoing toddlers. I truly believe in beach body and the products that they provide.
Since the beginning of my journey with T 25 I have tried a variety of other programs such as Turbo Fire, P90X3, the 21 Day Fix, Les Mills Combat, Brazilian Butt Lift, and now I am currently using the newest program PiYo. Beachbody has helped me get in the best shape of my life. I truly believe that my journey with beach body has played a vital role in my ability to overcome Sarcoma. Had I not lost the weight in my T25 challenge, I may have never noticed the lump on my arm which turned out to be cancerous. I thank God that we caught it so early and then it was able to be removed completely with two surgeries. Chemotherapy nor radiation was required and I am happy to report that I am 4 1/2 months clean of this cancer.
Today marks a huge day because I completed the 5K for the cure for Sarcoma. Sarcoma is a rare cancer that can affect anyone young or old, healthy or not healthy, it has no rules or boundries. I am blessed to have such wonderful Doctors, Dr. Tawbi and Dr. Weiss, who dedicate their lives to finding a cure. I am so happy to say that our team was able to raise $2,400 towards finding a cure! All donations are for research and finding a cure for Sarcoma. I just want to thank everybody who participated and donated to this cause. Thank you!
