This is my best friend from high school Julie aka JT, her sister Jen, and me at the finish line of the Chicago Marathon. JT beat her time from last year while sporting her bib that read "KAY KAY, KICKIN' CANCERS BUTT". She was my saving grace in high school, showing me the ropes and taking me in like a second sister, and has been there for me ever since. JT said to me before the race, "if you can beat cancer, I can at least run a dang marathon!". She held up her end and I now it's time for me to hold up mine.
