About This Activity

On September 28th, I will embark on my toughest physical challenge yet, An Ironman. An Ironman is a triathlon that consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a full marathon.  I am excited and intimidated by the challenge and the several months of training it takes to prepare for the event.  A friend and I have been planning on completing this for a couple of years to celebrate each of our 4oth Birthdays.  We call in project IW40 (Iron Woman 40).

We wanted to make this about more than ourselves, so we joined TeamChallenge.  In conjunction with preparing for this event I have also agreed to raise $5,000.00 for Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America.  Click here to learn more about this difficult and common disease.  It affects people of all ages which include friends and family of mine.  TEAM CHALLENGES' motto is PAIN IS TEMPORARY CURES ARE FOREVER.

But I want to go further... I don't want you to just support me in this challenge, I want you to join me.  I am launching MY LIFE MY RACE the unEvent for you to participate in.  Register now at ( and receive you unEvent Tshirt then on September 28th do something that you love to do, a sport, an activity, a project - get creative, bring your friends and family and tell me what it is. Make it fun, make it a challenge, make it about you.  Please join the unEvent facebook page and post your goal, your plan, your progress and on then on 9/28 post pictures of you celebrating your LIFE with your RACE.

In the mean time I will keep you up to date on my progress as I prepare for my own race.  Thanks for being here, for me, for you, and for A CURE.
