2012 Events - Registered!

The easy winter has me thinking of Spring and getting a jump start on this year's cycling season. Will is now officially registered for his first Pan Mass Challenge! (His fundraising page can be found here). We've registered to ride 2 charity events together this year -- the Tour de Cure in May (32.5 miles) and the PMC in August. I also plan to ride the Harpoon Point to Point and Sea Glass Ride, (without Will) for four rides total.

I have a lot of goals to meet this year. My blood counts have been wonky and the latest diagnosis is that I have Acquired Hemolytic Anemia, (probably due to a damaged spleen, and likely related to the bone marrow infection I had 2 years ago.) My red cell counts can take a dive -- resulting in overwhelming fatigue -- but it's not something that's going to beat me. My hematologist has suggested that I "find a new normal". I'm working on it. ("Never Surrender, never give up." Right?)

As our training gets underway, I hope to update the blog more often. It will be an interesting year...
