To the most wonderful group …
To the most wonderful group of supporters ever,

Now that it has been one week since the triathlon, I wanted to take a minute to thank you once again for your support of the Arzuw Foundation and our amazing students. I had plenty of time during the race to think about the hard work and sacrifices of these students, and their dedication and persistence in the face of many obstacles was a huge source of encouragement for me.

I hope you will consider ongoing support of the Arzuw Foundation. It only takes a moment to become a monthly donor at http://www.arzuw.org/donate/. Every single dollar you donate goes to helping Turkmen youth.

Now about that race...I'll keep it brief, but it was a long (6 hours) hard (70.3 total km) wet and cold slog through gorgeous Austrian countryside and little towns. There were very few Americans racing (and very few women overall - only 350 out of 2,200 racers!), so when I raced by spectators, they saw the U.S. flag on my race number and would shout "USA! USA!" It was very cool, no doubt! It was incredible having my guy Aaron there along with my parents, and even though I saw them just a handful of times on the long course, it was so motivating to know they were there cheering me on. In the end, I came in 41st for my age group, and was the 2nd female finisher from the U.S. overall, so that's pretty cool! :)

For now, I'm taking it easy and slowly getting back into yoga/Pilates before hitting the roads again. The 2014 race season is just around the corner - gotta be ready for that!

Thank you again for all you've done in making this race mean so much more than just a race. For the Turkmen students depending on our fundraising efforts for their fall and winter tuition this year, it means everything.

Take good care, and I hope we can all stay in touch!

All the best,
Sari

To all of you amazing people…
To all of you amazing people who have helped make a difference for the students of Turkmenistan,

I wanted to thank you all once again for your incredible generosity and support over the past couple of months. It has been a whirlwind for me between graduation, moving to DC, taking the bar exam, starting a new job, and training for this race. Knowing you are all in my corner made the process 100% more doable!

I leave on Friday for Europe, with the race itself looming on September 1. Weather near Innsbruck, Austria looks perfect - highs in the low 70s, sunny, and mild. Between now and then, I'll be fine-tuning my packing list and getting in some last-minute runs/swims/bikes. I'll be heading out in just a few minutes to bike up to the DC public pool in Adams Morgan for a swim workout before work, hoping that the laps feel smooth and easy.

I'm as ready as I'll ever be, and of course that's in no small part thanks to you. Really - you all have been wonderful!

Take good care, know that I'm deeply grateful for your support, and please send all the positive race vibes you can muster in the direction of Austria on September 1! :)

With the wind hopefully at my back,
Sari
