Since my hair has thinned and fallen out so much, I decided to shave it all off!
John and I had a little ceremony to mark the occasion, and to keep things light! I sang the National Anthem, my running Coach, former Olympian Gold Medalist Joaquim Cruz took the 1st cut of my hair, two Dining Hall staff members shaved their heads along with me, and we all enjoyed some refreshing watermellon!
I was touched to have such incredible support from the Sports Med Staff, Jimmy and Andy (Dining Hall Staff members), fellow Track and Field athletes, my current guide Anne Shadle, and my wonderful husband!
“My newly bald head feels a bit weird, but totally refreshing! I’m looking forward to going for a run and feeling the wind on my head!”
Thank you to everyone for joining me today!
