Two years.

My doctor got all my test results back & I am officially two years cancer free!

To celebrate I bought a new jersey and took a 35 mile victory lap (man the wind was brutal today!) I know there are plenty of Lance haters out there, but this jersey is kinda personal for me.




Now that my shoulder is starting to heal, I've set a target of dropping 25 lbs by my next b-day (Jan 30)

mymojo, A hearty congratulations!!!! And yes, the North wind was a pisser.

As far as the jersey goes, LA may have (or may not) his issues, I like him and I like his cancer awareness campaign.

Good news! I really like the jersey. And Lance aside, I like using the Livestrong site and use the calorie counter every day.
