Hello! It's been about thre…

It's been about three weeks since IRONMAN Wisconsin, which was a tough day for me because I missed the swim cut-off by 20 seconds and, therefore, was not allowed to continue. My day was done at 2 hours, 20 minutes and 20 seconds that day.

A more detailed reflection can be found on my blog:

It was the thought that I let you down that day that resonated within me for a good amount of time. As you knew, the purpose of my training this season was to bring awareness to the KOKUA that the IRONMAN Foundation represents. Staying fit throughout the process and getting a generous donation from you was only icing on the cake!

Nevertheless, I eventually became more rational and knew you would be proud that I fought hard and never gave up during that difficult, choppy swim, especially given that I couldn't even swim in 2011. I fought all the way to the end, but I didn't think I was THAT close.

As you will see in my detailed report, I was able to flip the situation around fairly quickly and channel my energy into encouragement and inspiration. I hope you enjoy the read - it's quite detailed!

Thank you again for supporting me through your donation this year! You will be happy to know that I will be tackling my swimming this Fall and Winter so I will never see myself that close to the swim cutoff ever again.

You will see the fruits of my labor at the inaugural IRONMAN Boulder on August 3, 2013. And, yes, you will certainly have another opportunity for a tax-deductible contribution during 2014 as well!


Thank you, thank you, THANK YOUUUUUUUU!!!!!
