I have had a huge amount of support from the people on BT. I've thought long and hard about whether or not to post on here but I've decided I should as some of you have followed me along the way.

10 days before my 8th Ironman at Arizona I had some tummy pain so I went to the hospital to get checked out. 2 days later I had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from my colon and found out it was stage 4 as it had spread to my lymph nodes and liver.

I will not let this slow me down and stop me from getting 12 finishes. In fact, I've continued to train throughout my chemotherapy treatments. Feel free to follow along on my blog:

Wow

You have been one of the people that have been my inspiration in my stop and go of working out. I am putting you into our miracle box at home ( a box that we put notes of things that beyond our control). Heal well,. Peace to you and your family.

Thought I'd post an update on here. After 3 months of chemo I'm thrilled to tell you that of my two liver tumors one is shrinking and the other stayed the same and my lymph nodes have also shown some shrinkage! It's positive progress! Animo!

I was humbled last year. My body shut down on me just before two World Championship events. I was originally in top form to medal in both, but my strength was sapped from me.

The journey begins in the brain. The brain, which energizes your attitude, is the most powerful factor in a lifestyle overhaul.
