I was scared to commit to this because I'm not a runner, not by a long shot! But I was afraid to face my BRCA1 diagnosis and I conquered that so....why not a few miles??
My name is Lindsey and I'm a Support Ambassador for Bright Pink in San Diego. I joined Bright Pink a few years ago on the heels of learning I tested positive for a gene mutation that greatly elevates my risk for having breast and ovarian cancer. I learned this a few weeks after losing my mom so I was all too familiar with how cruel cancer can be. For me, that made my decision to have preventative surgeries an easy one. I have incredible support, things went well and I'm still being proactive about my health because I have knowledge my late mom didn't, and I intend to use it!
I get a little emotional each time I run now, not because my legs are killing me (they are) but because I'm so blessed to have this opportunity. To be able to greet the sunrise from the waterfront of my favorite city is proof that life is worth living out loud!
Thank you for all of your support, it means the world!
