THE STORY:

As many of you know I unfortunately suffered from a Pulmonary Embolism on June 10, 2013, the day that changed my life forever. I was training for my 2nd Ironman competition when I didn't feel quite right. The next thing I knew I was in the ER. The doctors kept coming by with confused looks of "you're training for an Ironman, with blood clots in your lungs, and you're still walking more less riding a bike 80 miles?" Turns out that clots had formed in my leg during a red eye flight home from CA. The clots travelled up to my chest and consumed my right lung. So, after 4 days in the hospital I vowed to take my vengence out on the blood clots that could of ended my life. I did so by finishing that Ironman I wasn't able to do. On August 17th, 2014, 14 months after being diagnosed, I crossed the IRONMAN Mont Tremblant finish line. I covered the 140.6 miles thinking of my motto throughout the 9 months of training, #SUCKITPE! 

But my vengence doesn't stop with that one race.  I also vowed to spread the word to not only my endurance friends and community but everyone I know. Because bottom line, blood clots can affect EVERYONE!  I have been lucky enough to be selected by the National Blood Clot Alliance to run the TCS NYC Marathon this November with Team Stop The Clot. On my 10 year anniversary of living in NYC I felt it was the perfect platform to wear my red polka dot TSTC jersey. 

I'm not good at remembering statitics and numbers, but the one that will always stick out for me is this...

"Experts estimate that the number of deaths due to blood clots is greater than the number of deaths due to AIDS, breast cancer, and automobile accidents combined"

Consider that and PLEASE consider making a donation to an organization that is near and dear to me and my family. Thank you SO much for all your support!

All my love,

Angie

ps...a couple more...

Consider this:  
On Average, 274 People Die Every Day from Blood Clots

They can just as easily affect athletes as well as those less physically fit.  They affect men and women; rich and poor – blood clots do not discriminate.  

Take a look at profiles of people of all walks of life who have been affected. Some of our stories are stories of survival – often against great odds of misdiagnosis or simply being unaware of the signs, symptoms or risk factors.  Others are stories told by family members whose relative’s lives could not be saved. All have asked us to share their story in raising awareness of the impact of the public health challenge imposed by blood clots.
