Ordinary is extraordinary

When people look at me they see a mom and wife. What many people wouldn’t know is that I’m also a triathlete. I’ve been a triathlete for almost two years. It’s taken me about that long to say those words because I was never an athlete. But I am now. I AM A TRIATHLETE.

Today I’m so excited to watch the Ironman World Championship. Yes, it’s exciting to watch the professionals dominate this mentally and physically challenging sport, but I’m most inspired by the stories of the many women and men who are like me: Everyday working people who take care of their families and carve out enough time to devote to a sport they love. I’ve never done an Ironman, but nonetheless, it is a difficult sport at any level. We’re all ordinary people doing an extraordinary thing.
