Atlantic City Triathlon

Team Inspiration participated in the Atlantic City Triathlon last weekend! And what a weekend! Saturday night we had the pleasure of sharing dinner with a truly amazing group of people. Dawn and Amy of paratriathlon sat at the end of the table and gave us deliciously detailed descriptions of menu items, and even shared a taste of their dinners! Robert Vigorito, race director extraordinaire, joined us as well! Tom Knoll, one of the 12 original Ironmen, came to dinner prepared with his 1978 Ironman trophy! Inspiring cancer warrior Bethann dined with us, and she was accompanied her amazing...

Team Inspiration’s Healing House Open House

On January 30, 2011 we held The Healing House Open House as an inaugural fund raising event for Team Inspiration.  At the Open House we offered many of the services that we believe are important for healing body, mind and spirit: Yoga, meditation, massage, acupuncture, reflexology,  music, healthy food, herbal teas and the sharing of our energy and love!

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...

Columbia Triathlon Post Race Report

Columbia Triathlon 2010 got off to a very soggy start! I woke up at 4:00 a.m. race morning to the sound of pouring rain. But then I remembered what a wonderful event this is rain or shine! The rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirit for the race, especially Natasha! Most of all I was very excited because our honored teammate from the 2009 Columbia triathlon was now our teammate racing on one of our relay teams! Dan Alderman was a cyclist on one of our relay teams and my son, Ben, was also a cyclist for Team Inspiration. Last year Ben rode in honor of Dan who was one of my patients receiving...
