I am a 40 something who has been living with lupus since 1998. When I was diagnosed, I was told to "get my life in order" because I should expect about 10 more years of life. At the time I thought that 10 years was a long time and was thankful to have that much of a future. I'm now well past that 10 years and I'm celebrating my life every day! Along the way I was blessed with an amazing boyfriend, Tim. Tim has modeled an active lifestyle that I have embraced and my lupus has loved.

Let's Do The Numbers
I have been thinking of another new goal that I want to achieve this summer. I want to do an ironman length triathlon... over the course of a week! ( I got you, you thought that I was going to say I wanted to do an ironman!) For those of you who don't know the length of an ironman is 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mile run. I think I can do this!
Okay.. right to the numbers for this week: bike - 25.3, run - 8, swim - 1/2. My totals are now: swim - 2, bike - 52.6, and run - 23.5. My goals are: swim - 25 miles, run - 125 miles, bike - 1000 miles. I know I didn't do those in order, I wanted to be sure that you had something to think about.
