Greg and I will also be saying goodbye to the freedom we currently enjoy due to having no commitments at home - i.e. a pet. On Tuesday July 5th we will bring home Neo, our 8 week old black lab puppy. We are excited and nervous and already arguing over who will be walking him... more to come once we actually have him here!
I have agreed to be the captain for my company's Komen NYC Race for the Cure 2011. Join us on September 18th! The more the merrier! I received the great news that I will no longer need Zometa; clinical studies just have not panned out. I also received the great news that I have been selected to have my portrait photographed by a well known professional photographer to be placed in of Komen NYC's Survivor Series. I have decided to be photographed with a mammography machine. Sounds weird right? I was allowed to pick absolutely any setting and since I just think it is so important to get the message out there that women not need be afraid of the machine - hell, I love that thing, it saved my life - it just seemed like the pose to do! (I will not be having a mammogram - don't worry mom - no topless shots!) A mammogram also caught a very early cancer in a dear friend so again I am thankful to that big hunk of metal. If I get a copy I can share, I'll post the result!
Like I said, it is July - already.... with my 4th class, two triathlons on my calendar,and a new puppy I am sure this month will fly by as quickly as June did. I am doing my best to be mindful of the beautiful days and get out to row as often as I can. Happy Birthday America - I'll be donning red, white and blue in your honor this weekend!
