First Run Post Chemo

#thefightison

I DID IT! I ran three days after my first chemo treatment. Wasn’t pretty, but it was an enormous victory for my spirit. Then, I made a cry-baby video about it. GET THE LIGHTS! I was so happy that I got dressed and out the door.  ALL THE CRIES! The morning was cool, the winds […]
