The new face of football

As it turns out, I just maybe the next face of football in WA, and really, why shouldn’t I be. At chemogym today and I am doing my 5-minute marathon on the exercise bike when the gym owner/chemogym coordinator introduces me to a photographer. He asks me and another chemogym member if we would mind having our photo taken for with some football player to promote a fundraising football match this weekend.

So they were just waiting for another football player to rock up and before I know it I have my arms around a guy in a football jumper (no, of course I don’t know his name), looking at him in adoration as he rides one of the exercise bikes (a very natural pose of course- to be riding an exercise bike while two cancer patients have their arms around your neck). Should be in The West Australian newspaper this week sometime.

So I am just letting people know that it is actually me in the photo. The fact that I am in a gym hugging a football player shouldn’t throw you. This is the new me. Well, this is the ‘me’ that readers of the West Australian newspaper will see anyway. I can imagine that I will be stopped in the street for years to come as people say “Hey, aren’t you that football fanatic who works out really hard in gyms?” Yep, that’s me.

The downside is that I will have to purchase copies of The West Australian this week. I have been boycotting this ‘publication’ as much as I can recently as it continues to insult my intelligence and the intelligence of many others older than 9.

I had a meeting with the specialist today and all is well. Treatment seems to be going well and I start my 3rd cycle of chemo on Thursday. My energy levels are up and I feel kind of mobile most of the time. I’ve got a headache on my mind at the moment which can take its toll, but other than that, I feel good.
