My goal for many years was to qualify for and race at the World Championships in Kona, HI. Well, last week I finally realized that goal. My daughters were able to see me complete this race, which made it extra special to me. My goal was to appreciate every single minute of the race. I took nothing for granted. I sat up to enjoy the views, I thanked as many volunteers as I could, and I took it all in. What an experience!!! I felt so humbled to be there.
I usually share info about training and competing, but today I want to share what motivates me to push day in and day out. I think these pics capture the essence of what drives me.
