Pretty Cool

I forgot to mention… Nike & LAF/Livestrong are doing something really cool for the Tour de France. You can send an email message or text message with a tagline that will be spray painted on the road during the tour. They will even send you an image of it and let you know when & where the...

Man in the Mirror

Don’t worry- this isn’t the Michael Jackson tribute post! But since they’ve been playing his music everywhere, I’ve been hearing this song over and over. (For the record- my favorite MJ song is “PYT” and favorite J5 song is “Blame it on the Boogie”). I...

Tears of a Clown

Up until this week, I’ve really been enjoying the swim piece of my training. Five weeks ago, I could barely do a lap, and last week I was up to 22. However, it seems like this week everything hurts. My lower back, my nagging foot issues, my calves. I was chalking it up to the normal training lull…...

Wearing of the Green

There have been a couple requests for the meaning behind Waeger Will Win and the green bracelets. I had to do a little research, so if I don’t get it exactly right, it’s close enough! So, with a little help from Serge & Joe… “Waeger Will Win is pretty much a phrase coined...

Happy Birthday

Dear Dan- Happy Birthday! I miss you every day, but am so thankful for all the wonderful memories you left me. We crammed a lot of happiness into such a short time. As you said, “We had a good run.” Thank you so much for loving me and making me a better person. You showed me what it was...

Another Year Older

So Friday is Dan’s birthday. I’ve been very careful not to make certain days big “anniversaries” of events. For me, it would just make this whole experience a lot harder. It’s bad enough getting through normal days. I wonder if people at work have any idea what it takes...

Another Loss

A couple of years ago, Golf Digest ran a contest that allowed one lucky winner to play at the US Open with a celebrity foursome that included Justin Timberlake and Matt Lauer. That winner was John Atkinson, and he was a lung cancer survivor. You can’t imagine how jealous Dan was, and kicked himself...

Starting Off on the Wrong Foot

So a couple of weeks ago I started my training for a little triathlon in late August. Being the type-A, overachiever that I am, I decided that the program wasn’t tough enough, and that I was going to run more than suggested because I hate running & really wanted to do well. Ok, really I just...

Must See TV

I just wanted to give a little plug to a series that the Today show is running this week called Confronting Cancer. Tomorrow (Wed. June 10) there will be a very special guest from NCCS- “Boss Lady” will be featured on a segment covering living with cancer. As someone whose life has been impacted...

In Case of Emergency

Every day, it amazes me at what things bring up the twinges of pain or disbelief that Dan is no longer here. Things like having to change my “in case of emergency person”. It feels like you wait your whole life to have someone to list other than your parents if something were to happen. Things...
