Dear Friends and Family, It…
Dear Friends and Family,

It's now a week+ since I completed the Chattanooga IronMan in memory of Eric. I'm still reflecting on the day, the months leading up to it, and the tremendous outpouring of love and support.

Thank you so much for being involved in this journey. Your donations, encouragement, and shared stories were such an inspiration to me on race day.

The race itself was an amazing experience. I'm still working to find the words to describe it all.

In short, I'm most proud of the swim. Swimming has been the hardest piece of triathlon for me and this was honestly the best swim I ever had in any triathlon (plus it was the longest at 2.4 miles!). I was so happy to be relaxed in the water, feel like I was swimming strong, and complete this section in less than my goal time!

The bike was long and challenging. On the first half of both loops there was a steady headwind which makes it feel like a constant climb. There's no drafting (riding close behind another cyclist) allowed in these races, so 116 miles was a LONG ride to do alone!

And lastly, the run. Wow, 26.2 miles is a really, really long way! And there were so many hills! My pace was slow, but I maintained a steady jog, refusing to give into the temptation to walk. I thought about Eric and the others who are no longer able to walk on this earth and reminded myself that because I can, I will keep running.

For all of you who cheered me on in person, through FB, What's App, and other means of technology -- THANK YOU!!! I'm incredibly grateful.

Thank you again, for your belief in me, in Eric, and in supporting Wat Preah Yesu in Cambodia.

Lots of love and gratitude,
Lisa Iron(wo)Man Hope Tilstra :)
