Checking in with less than thirty to go before the Ironman World Championships. It has been a wild summer and we are enjoying as much of this grind as we can. Not many times do you get to say you are preparing for a world championship race.
We just finished up our last long training weekend together logging more than 100 miles on the road between bike & run. We will then participate in a transition walk through on Monday to make sure our team is all on the same page before we pack and ship our gear off to KONA.
The fundraising has been incredible and we cannot thank you all enough for stepping up to be a part of this journey with us. With the race long since funded, we are aiming for the stars to create more opportunities for impact. The fundraising will be used to purchase a new transport vehicle to assist athletes in getting to and from races, a new truck to accommodate our massive growth this year, two (2) job opportunities for disabled persons and to establish a van scholarship fund.
Triathlon and endurance sports were life changing for me. It came to my life at a time when I was making adjustments to my life and trying to find more meaning in everything I did. I had no idea that signing up for an Ironman would lead to so much and enrich my life immeasurably. It has helped us to enrich the lives of so many beyond KONA and for many more miles to come.
We look forward to celebrating all fall with you as we complete prep for KONA, send 19 teams to Washington DC for the Marine Corps Marathon and of course our annual bowling event.
Together WE Wheel!
