First I would like to start off with an update.
Last week, my house caught fire and burned down. I was the only one home at the time of the fire and am ok. Unfortunately, we lost pretty much everything including all of our belongings, pictures, and things from my childhood as well as all of my tri and running gear. HOWEVER, being the true and dedicated triathlete like I am, I saved my Tribike!
Thankfully, my sponsors have been so great to help replace some of my items lost and the guys at Twenty 20 bike shop in Hampden have been so kind to discount everything I buy until I am back on my feet.
But more incredibly, some of my close friends from Miami started a fundraiser to help me replace all of my gear and I couldn’t be more grateful. So many of my friends from Miami and Zeta Tau Alpha alums (my sorority) whom I have never even met have donated and to support this fundraiser to help me get back into my training and racing. I feel so blessed to have so many amazing people in my life who care so much for me as to do these things. To everyone who has donated, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your generosity and kindness mean so much to me and I feel so loved.
This season is dedicated to you guys and I can’t wait to share (hopefully many wins) with you.
