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.

I Had This Crazy Idea.....
My idea was to complete an ironman triathlon. . An ironman is a triathlon that consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 run. No, I'm not crazy I wasn't going to do it all in one day. My goal was to do it over the course of one week. I'm happy to say that I did complete the the ironman, but it took me 8 days. Maybe I'll try it again some day.
My summer numbers / goals: run 107 / 125, bike 1000 / 563, swim 8 / 25.
