Road to the Iron Man

August 5, 2007
by Leslie Biernat

Well itís time for an update on my road to the Iron man and what an interesting journey it is turning out to be.  To begin with I did not know much about training for one just enough to complete sprint distance triathlons like the Danskin so I needed to educate myself.  I have read several books now on the how to and how not to train for this event itís quite overwhelming actually.  There is so much that goes into it way beyond the actual running, swimming, and biking, itís the whole nutrition aspect of it too.  So I went online and purchased a training program to help me along the way or at least get me started but first I needed the proper equipmentÖ.

Leslie's Road to the Iron Man

May 3, 2007
by Leslie Biernat

My name is Leslie Biernat and I am a SURVIVOR.  In April of 2003 I was diagnosed with Stage III Invasive Ductal Carcinoma at age 33. My tumor was 6.5 cm and I had 1 of 3 lymph nodes positive.  No family history, no medical problems, no risk factors except the fact that I am a woman and 1 out of 7 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime with this disease. My cancer journey started with 6 rounds of chemotherapy, followed by lumpectomy, radiation, tamoxifen, mastectomy with immediate reconstruction, and top it off with complete hysterectomy. I am currently taking Aromasin.  Cancer has made me look death in the face and fight, but most importantly it taught me to live!  No one is guaranteed tomorrow, whether you have cancer or not, we must all live in the moment and enjoy each precious day that we are given; it is truly a gift from God.
