Life has been crazy over the past couple of weeks and I have not been blogging lately and I fear I will not have the time to do so regularly for awhile.
My holiday was a little different this year as my Aunt has been struggling with lung cancer for the past 6 months and had to go into the hospital over x-mas. There is nothing more important than family, so with my other family members we were there by her side. Hospice was set up and she was released to go home on 12/27. I felt guilty for leaving that day and going to Ohio and actually continued to feel guilty most of the time I was there.
Even though Fredericksburg, VA is not too far from DC the traffic makes it near to impossible for me to make it there to visit after work. So I have been rearranging my schedule and will be down there every weekend. With that said, I am not sure how I will fit in my training and I'm not really to worried about it. My half IM training was suppose to start on Jan 16th, but if I can't get in all the workouts I can't get them in and life will go on.
I have also started thinking about trying to fund raise for the cancer society, but I'm not even sure how or were to begin?
Anyhow, I wish everyone a happy 2012 and will try to keep up with the blog world.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your Aunt. I hope the new year brings you better news!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your aunt. I have been in shoes, and it is so incredibly difficult. After my aunt lost her battle with cancer in 2009, I joined Team in Training to fund raise for cancer research. If I were you, I would just call the American Cancer Society tell them you want to raise money. Trust me, they won't say no.

  3. oh sarah, i'm so sorry to hear about your aunt. I hope she isn't in pain and has family around her.

  4. Sorry to hear about your Aunt, but remember, there will always be HIM'd to race!

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about your aunt. I know you won't regret making family a priority for the near future. I'll be thinking of you.
