I am happy to report that I had an oncology follow up appointment this past Friday. As you may know, I always get a little squirrely going into these checkups. But this one went even better than I could have expected. All blood work was 100% perfect and my lymph nodes were in check. My doc even called me totally “normal”. Of course, he rolled his eyes, and placed air quotes around that word knowing that my passion for endurance sports almost automatically eliminated me from membership to the “normal” club. But that’s fine by me. I never wore normal very comfortably anyway.
So, now I can focus the next few weeks on putting the final touches on my ultra marathon training and the trip to South Africa.
