Barbara M @thetrisurvivor

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.

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 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 :)

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:

Thanks for visiting my blogsite and Tribesports Profile :)

Hi Al, thanks! I hope Arsenal is doing well :) When I was over there on my O.E. I went to watch them play QPR in 1992 at Highbury and they won and since then I have been a fan of theirs :)) All the best in your training and hope you get to Tough Mudder soon :)
