Give Me A Moment…

As you’re reading this, I’m having my second (and final, let’s hope..) surgery. I’ll be back soon, don’t you worry.

In the meantime, ‘ll leave you with a preview of how Sunday’s Shamrock Half Marathon went:

We wore tutus.

My quads hurt. And my toesies hurt. My belly is full.

…More on all that later.

Love the outfits! I’m planning on buying some fun running skirts like that for my next races. It’s fun to get all “dressed up”. :)

Can’t wait to hear about the recap and hope your surgery goes well. Hugs!

Awesome job on running another long race! It’s a big accomplishment, I hope that I can build up to running a half marathon within the year. You are such an inspiration! Make it through this last surgery, and keep smiling!

Hey Alyssa! Congrats on the run!! You have inspired me to get my first skin check. I kept putting it off for quite some time because I guess that I was afraid of what I might find. Your story inspired me to just go now because its better to be safe than sorry! I was wondering if you could tell me what to expect at the check up?

Reply

38 Alyssa @ Life of bLyss March 20, 2012 at 4:06 pm

I’m so glad you’re getting checked out, Katie!

It really depends entirely on the dermatologist. In my experience, I got to undress, put on a paper gown, and she just did a quick once-over my whole body. she circled the spots she thought looked risky and scraped them off with a little razor blade (initially, no big deal at all). when they came back as cancerous, I had to schedule surgery quickly. they couldn’t take all of it out at once, so I had two separate surgeries.

good luck!
