When I was coming closer to the finish line, I got so overwhelmed with emotion. Ever since I did a triathlon in Austin many years ago, I fell in love with the sport. People were showing support by cheering me.
I love that, after so many years, I want to do one again.
I love the exercise that has helped me during the hardest time in my life. It has kept me from falling into a depression.
I am grateful for having a healthy and happy son. I am grateful for my family and always having my back.
I am grateful for strangers than have become friends. I am grateful for my coach Jen, who inspires me every day. Thanks to my swimming coach, whose words of support at the pool have helped me more than he can imagine.
