| Locked and loaded! I finally feel like I’m ready to do the damn thang! A huge special THANK YOU to Ryanne for being the most patient, informative, supportive training sister EVER!!! I wouldn’t have gotten this far with out you and I’m so ready to cross the finish line together! Jenny C for all your encouraging words and the inspiration of your triathlon story! Summer for letting me borrow your wetsuit and for always being such an insanely strong athlete! (Your wall of metals is an image that both haunts and reminds me that I can absolutely do this) And Bruce for letting myself and my dogs and alllll the race equipment rob your space and weekend mornings! Your patience and support is beyond. To my parents for making the drive and coming to support and Mike for coming with and for donating 🙂 MOST IMPORTANTLY: Thank you to all the generous donors for supporting an amazing cause. Today when I am beat tired and want to give up, I will ride because I CAN, I will swim harder for those who can’t, and I will run my absolute best because I am grateful for the gift of my mobility and I will not take it for granted!
