Today, October 15th, marks the 2nd Anniversary of my FBC (f-bomb breast cancer) diagnosis. I can’t believe that I just wrote that. Any of it. The fact that I actually had FBC and the fact that it’s been 2 years since my life changed on a dime. Phew, what a difference two years makes!
About 1/2 way through my chemo treatments (when walking to the kitchen felt like a herculean task!), I concocted the idea to do something VERY physical every year on the day of my diagnosis. Why, you ask? Well, I saw it as a major Silver Lining way to celebrate my health on the exact day that it evaporated.
Last year, on the 1st anniversary I ran a 1/2 Marathon (and cried tears of joy as I crossed the finish line and fell into the HOTY’s arms).
This year, I am doing a wonderfully rigorous 4+ hour hike with some super fabulous girlfriends. The name of the trail, Inspiration Point, sure isn’t lost on me!
