It's been about two weeks I wrote this but just wasn't ready to post it..Last week was a emotional hit in the stomach and it was hard to focus on things, still is if I really let my mind go and lose focus. My girlfriend and I have been together for just over a year and while she is without a doubt the kindest loving person I have met of which I have been blessed to be with her. She is a strong women and goes out of her way for many things, is not a drama person and just goes with the flow, I love her dearly! So after finding out she has breast cancer (Ductal carcinoma) last Tuesday really pulled the rug out from things. I mean what is someone to think, right? At first its like it's not real or unrealistic but then it sinks in. She goes back to the doctor later this month for info on treatment and things. Ductal C is diagnosed in about 60,000 women per year or 1 out of 5 new breast cancer cases. So as anyone can imagine its been a shocker.
The first week was just trying to understand what was happening and comfort Dez with love and support. She is doing well overall but has her moments. It actually took me a while to really hit me I think and after about 5 days it sunk in. Heading into this past week I was on a Recover week so I took some time on my runs to really think about all this. It has been hard to kind of grasp but overall it's here and it's time to understand it and face it head on, just like running these ultras.
thanks for letting me share..
