Barbara M Hi Sierra, thanks for following me :) I hope your training is going well and your having a fabulous weekend! Barbs :)
On a nice day in summer I do a triathlon, fly Microlights, Fishing, I have just published my book surviving bone cancer & missed my chance getting to the IM Start Line, but Volunteering at Ironman NZ rocks! My current book cover (will be updated soon) is a thank you to Triathlon that saved my life. http://barbaramockford.co.nz
It is amazing what you can do when you've been told your going to die by an oncologist.
I have written in my book all that I ate and all that I did to survive and still be here 6 years later so just maybe it might help someone.
You can read more about me at http://www.barbaramockford.co.nz with lots of photos :) and a link to read a few pages of my book where you can read the start of my Half Ironman race:) My story/book takes you through two Half IM races, some romance and a huge rocky adventure! enjoy :) http://barbaramockford.co.nz/an-unshakable-belief/
I have also made a tribute page to Tribesports Readers and it is just humbling reading their kind words - click to have a read of them: http://barbaramockford.co.nz/tribesports-com-comments/

Barbara M Hi Irena, thanks for following me :) Hope your training is going well and your having a fab day :)
Barbara M Hi Amber, thanks for following me :) what an inspiring bio! I think the same, health is something you really have to work for and when your not 100% it makes you more focused - I am feeling real crap just lately, my Left elbow is having a right spaz at the moment and the wrists - I need to buy a bandage so I can wrap them up in cotton wool to feel nice - might do this today :) the mornings are the worst but after some panadol and 3 black coffees life feels dooable by the afternoons when I contemplate the gym :) Your amazing achieving all you have with 3 children all by yourself! You rock!
Barbara M Hi Denise, thanks so much for following me and I am so sorry for such a late follow - it is so cool seeing another Kiwi on this site :) We are so in for a wet few days ... luckily I have a training session with my Personal trainer tomorrow, makes it so much easier going to the gym in the rain :) Your goal is similar to mine lol I want at least a glimmer of some abb muscles for the summer time in my bikini .... am now going for the meanest and hardest crunches lol
Barbara M Hi Mark, thanks for following me :) Your bio is wonderful and you should be very proud of yourself! Congratulations! I hope you have a lovely day :)
Barbara M Hi Jon, thanks for following me - OMG you have a very similar strong mind to me and reading your bio sounds similar to what I went through.. You should be very proud of yourself of such tenacious perseverance! The mind is a very powerful and you have it - good on you! Nothing can bring us down :)
Barbara M Hi Sean, thanks for following me :) and what a fabulous profile : and your so right about being able to do anything with commitment :) Hope your training is going well, Barbs
Barbara M 400 crunches yesterday but now going to focus on a very hard 10 or 15 with 5kg weights - see how this goes :) I've been told, only weights will define the abb muscles so that's what I'll be doing till summertime :)
Barbara M Hi Richard, thanks for following me :) I do like your profile pic :) it's a bit like a Marlin Brando movie shot lol very cool :) Hope your running is going well and the colder weather has not been too unkind to stop you getting out for a run :)
