Absolutely incredible!! One of the coolest things I've done & another thing off the bucket list! It's too hard to explain in one blog post. 2400+ athletes swimming together in the water and taking on the challenge of a lifetime. This event was so different than anything else, not only because of the distance, but because the goal is to finish, not to beat anyone else. Everyone on the course was cheering each other on, 55,000 fans cheering us on, and 4,000 volunteers there to support us. It was so awesome to be a part of this and to join the Ironman family.
I felt so much better than what I could have ever imagined. I just kept going faster and faster and felt better and better. It was incredible. God has blessed me so much with strength, the athleticism to complete something like this, and He gave me such favor in this event.
Over the next few days I'm going to explain the top things I have learned from this event, and the lessons God has taught me.
I want to thank all of you for your support, prayers, and continued encouragement!
