On August 20th 2017 I will be completing my 1st 140.6 IRONMAN Triathlon and I am grateful to do it for Team PHenomenal Hope. I was inspired to begin this journey 8 years ago because my nephew James was born with a heart condition that required a transplant when he was only 11 days old. He fought so hard to just get a chance to be here and I knew I had to step it up and take responsibilty for the space I took up in the world and give back while doing it. I am joining this team because I believe we are all connected and where one person who is fighting Pulmonary Hypertension must rely on a spiritual strength I cannot imagine, I can use the strength of my legs, my heart, and my lungs to give their journey a voice. I want to be a conduit to doing something extraordinary with my life and for others. For too long I was inadvertently taught to dim my light to believe and respond to all my doubts, to stay small because my dreams were too big, pipe dreams, unrealistic, & impossible...but after 6 different races leading up to this goal and over $24,000 of successful charity fundraising I have completed in the past, I believe in what is possible Let's get liberated and find a cure!
