Pink pin in nationals packets: Winning the race against cancer
Here’s what note in the packet will say:
"Pink pin in nationals packets: Winning the race against cancer",
Cancer touches everyone is some way, and as natural competitors and athletes, our outlook of the fight comes from the same drive inside. My intensity of training hasnâ€™t changed, my wife, Karen, and I are just running a different type of race. The mental, emotional and physical demands we endure for competition at the levels of Track & Field are now laser focused on WINNING THE RACE against cancer.
Cannot believe what SPEED truly means: Karen and I have always done this. We are always proactive with our health care; annual exams, dental, blood work, the usual male/female screenings, and finally home-self exams. We trust and hope that you do the same for yourselves, and encourage family, friends, and loved ones to follow suit.
Never take your competitorâ€™s SPEED for granted and react FAST. When the gun went off in this race our reactionary time was critical. At that split second we did not know that the Grade 3 FAST growing tumor had already left the blocks. Even as early as we detected it, cancer has a mind of its own. No two cancers are the same.
Know your competition: The amount of knowledge we needed to have in such a short time span will make your head spin. Finding trusted information through our resources was GOLD. Many blessing to Meghan, her mother, and our dear friends.
World Class Standards: Many of us research our individual events to out-perform our competition; and for this race â€“ knowing your competition is just as clutch.
Weâ€™ve had wonderful responses, gifts, and support from our Masterâ€™s Track & Field family. Our gratitude can never be fully expressed. Please show your support during this weekâ€™s competition; wear this pin on your competitive and/or warm-up uniform during this Masterâ€™s Track & Field Championship. I will be running with you in a different way. Good Luck in your Competition.
If we can ever help and guide someone you know, please contact us.
With Godâ€™s Speed, on and off the Track & Field
Karen & Craig Davis – World Master 55-59 SPRINTER
