Thank you all for the birthday wishes. Facebook/Twitter is great and it was so nice to hear from friends from all over the world, that took the time to say a quick hi and wish me. It really made me feel special!
It too was great being home to celebrate with my family!
My daughter wrote me a card that touched my heart and made me cry.
For those of you that did not see it on FB...It went like this
Love is possible...it is!
"Buttiful,nice,great,talented,Ironman,helping,winning champ,comfy,sleepy(lol) and my perfect angel!
You are the best person in the entire world!"
I'll be honest I don't like getting older...I'm not happy about it at all....but I did have a fun rewarding birthday.
Winning a race always feels good...and making a decision to dedicate my race to Sally, to the people of Japan and to my good friend Basil who passed away from cancer last year was a good reminder to make it all count!!! Too push beyond...to hurt because we get to live another day, run another day and they don't!
Remember why you train....Why you race...Do what you love...Have passion!!! Celebrate with friends and family!
Make each day count..each workout count and each hug meaningful....because life is too short!
Racing... makes me feel alive...pushing myself,my boundries,pushing out of my comfort,challenging my mental and physical self...competing..I have always loved it! Training, being outdoors,with nature,feeling my heart beat and sharing it with like minded athletes and friends is my passion.
Watching my children compete is now equally as wonderful!
Sydney came home after my race and wanted to go running. Tanner rode his bike next to her while she ran a mile sprinting like her mom to the finish....she definitely has the running bug!
So life is good and I cherish every moment!
