What better way to lose the post baby weight than to register and run for a first half marathon? Let the training begin.
Post baby body: Under construction.
Then the cough came.
Then the shortness of breath.
Pair that with drenched night sweats and itchy legs.
Post baby body: Put on pause.
Half marathon: Put on pause.
There is no pause for that.
January of 2014 is around the time cancer revealed it's ugly self to me. The cancer that always seemed to belong to someone else, was now my burden to carry. Cancer for a 31 year old, healthy mom of 2.
That was my new role.
New goal: survive.
I was a mom- I had two boys, three and three months.
I was a mom with everything to fight for.
I was a mom with cancer.
That half marathon was going to have to wait.
