I did take some time off in July due to complications and surgery. I had to wait a month before starting radiation, but I continued walking daily to remain active. I finished most of my treatment by the first of November and started back to Boot Camp. It was a slow process, but each week I would just try harder. I began running again and ran the St Jude 10K in December. Everyone was so encouraging and Mike would always alter any of my exercises as not to interfere with my recovery.
I thank God for putting Mike and Erica in my life when He did. Mike, Erica, and everyone at Fusion, including their boys (they would often ask how I was feeling) have played a huge role in my life – they have prayed for me and with me along my journey. They are also so motivating and encouraging to help in achieving my goals.
