Never in my life did I think or would have ever said I will be a triathlete and now I can and boy does it feel good! Crossing that finish line is a memory I will never forget and can tell my children one day.
The feeling that comes over you when you cross that finish line is something that I will never forget. It is a rush of emotions that I cannot even explain but one of the greatest feeling of my life.
Hands down my husband is my number-one fan. He is at every race cheering me on, rain or shine, hot or cold. During my swim he was at the end of each lane motivating me and during the run he would run along side of me and tell me how good I was doing. I don’t think he knows how much I appreciate it, but him being there for me makes it so much easier and much more worthwhile. I dedicate my races to him and all of the support he gives me.
