Why Deanne is Half Full

The week of Half Full will be 5 years since I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

Soon after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer in Oct 2007, I signed up for my first triathlon that I completed in June 2008 (The Philadelphia Triathlon, Olympic distance). I also joined a local triathlon club where I met my now husband. We married less than a year later in May 2009. Triathlon has become a meaningful part of my life!

I am happy to report that I have made a full recovery and am doing well. This race is a celebration for me of what I am physically able to do and what I have overcome. I am happy to be racing the Half Full that benefits the Ulman Cancer Fund, and I am very happy to have my husband cheering me on.
