Kira 1, Cancer 0

If cancer was Spider Man, Kira just whipped his ass. And in such style no less.

Yes, we’re happy, proud, elated, ecstatic, and jumping for joy at the news that Kira has completed her entire round of chemotherapy in her effort to whip ass on breast cancer. 7 rounds with Muhammed Ali result in Kira looking fine and fit, albeit with a wee bit less hair, and she even let the bastard have the first punch.


grace under pressure

If you know Kira, then you know she’s got nothing but fight in her. To exemplify this, she continued working out during chemo, even attending spin classes. Yeah, the issue was never in doubt. Cancer picked the wrong person to fuck with. Aside from that, she plans on training again for the 2010 road season. After something like cancer, I do not think any race or opponent will phase her much.


always laughing, this one

Aside from the super serious rad b/w photo at the top, Kira was always smiling and always laughing through chemo. Sure, there were hard days, rotten days, terrible days, but she’d never let you know it. And in her “class” of fellow chemo takers, she was the light of the room, keeping everyone revved up for the fight with a smile and a laugh.


always at the races, no matter what

So please join us in congratulating her on this, her most important win of her life. And to make matters extra sweet, today is her 40th birthday as well, so let’s all raise a toast to this awe-inspiring, impressive woman. Please leave a comment and wish her a great day and congratulate her on winning the war.


It won’t be long before you see this again….and when you do, I’d run.

    Happy belated birthday and bravo on your epic battle. I truly believe in the power of the human spirit and I think your fighting drive coupled with the fact that you have such a beautiful heart didn’t give this cancer crap a chance in hell. Chapeau and I so look forward to racing with you!!!
