I love going to races, because I love the emotional energy and connection I make with so many other people that have been impacted by colorectal cancer. From meeting other survivors, to seeing families so impassioned about what they do to honor the memory of someone they lost to this disease - it just fills me up.
And I don't go to these races as a survivor. Obviously I am, but this isn't my race and this isn't my time. I'm simply there as an employee of the Colon Cancer Coalition doing my job. And if someone happens to figure out what I am, then my cover is blown. But rarely do I play the "survivor" card when I'm in work mode.

Without much effort, I also lured a few of my longest and closest friends to come down. Though not the best place to hang out due to my limited time and availability, it was still so great to know that they wanted to come down and do their part to support me, and to support my cause. I look forward to seeing even more of my friends and family when we have our inaugural race in Los Angeles on May 15th.
You heard it here first, folks! Get Your Rear in Gear - Los Angeles is happening, and I couldn't be more excited. I plan to form a team, should you happen to live in LA (or any of the surrounding counties) and want to join.
