Kona or Bust! Fueled by Gratitude!

This is a pic of an article from Triathlete Magazine in 2010 when I qualified for Kona at IRONMAN Arizona. I carried with me that day 140 LiveStrong wristbands…one for each mile of the race. Two on my wrists for the 2.4 mile swim, 112 on my bike, and 26 on the marathon. Each one was dedicated to one of my cancer warriors. I made the mistake of saying that I carried them, but really we carry one another. You may be able to read the article, but basically I was asked to talk about what was in my training plan that allowed me to achieve a slot to Kona. I said it was the strength I drew...

Iron Man World Championship

  Aloha and Mahalo! As many of you know I am an oncology nurse and my qualifying race was in Arizona where I wore 140 Livestrong bracelets with the name of a cancer warrior on each one. Matt Fitzgerald, one of the editors at Triathlete Magazine wrote a wonderful article about my Ironman Arizona experience and titled it, Fueled by Gratitude. If I were to sum up Kona in one word it would be Mahalo, which means thank you and is used to express true gratitude. It was my mantra throughout the race and actually throughout my entire experience in Hawaii! In Kona I wore a lei around my race belt...

Iron Girl Sprint Triathlon August 22, 2010

Iron Girl 2010! The entire Iron Girl weekend was a blast! Saturday was a fun filled day of racking the bikes and volunteering at the expo. One of the biggest perks of helping at the expo besides meeting so many fabulous Iron Girls is multiple passes through the expo itself. Lots of great purchases for the Team Inspiration Iron Girls and I have to say we were styling before, during, and after the race! Although it did end up raining during the race, it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits in the least. Our team was amped up with the energy of carrying our cancer warriors in our hearts and on...
