Many of you that know me, know I'm a runner from way back. So, only having to get the shoes and race number together (as opposed to the loads of triathlon gear usually required) was a nice treat! It felt like coming home!!
Don't worry, I'll be attempting that open half marathon again some day.. until then.. you can bet I'll be hungry to get back out there in an open and try to bust through that PR - thanks for all your support, love and for just refusing to give up on me friends and family. I don't deserve you.. but I sure do love you!
A HUGE THANK YOU to my supporters and sponsors:
Ballou Skies for allowing me to be part of this great team that does so much good for boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Power bar for fueling me with delicious products that never fail me on race day. Newtons for helping me run with good form and hopefully, get speedier with time. Rudy Project for making some of the coolest looking glasses and helmets that also are light and fast. Top Gear for outfitting me with a bike that works and helping me learn how to fix it along the way. CycleOps for making trainers that allow me to ride inside (which in Pittsburgh is quite often). Blueseventy for supporting our Ballou Skies team. Finally, last but not least Infinit for crafting the drink mixes that keep GI issues at bay all Ironman long! You keep me in the game, faster, longer and stronger – I can’t thank you enough!
