MOST MEMORABLE WW EVENT: Competing at Ironman Louisville. Although I was unable to finish, I was so proud of overcoming my fear of the race and proud of the distance I did cover. I was seven miles from the finish line. This is my redemption year!

INSPIRATION: My husband and children inspire and motivate me to stay fit. My husband encourages me to pursue challenges and is always there to help me meet my goals. He is my biggest fan!
