While most aspects of life as an aspiring professional triathlete are amazing, chasing this dream also presents some unique challenges. One of the most difficult aspects of pursuing my athletic passion is making it work financially. Being a competitive triathlete is extremely expensive. And while I work very hard to keep costs down for myself, and have been fortunate enough to receive some fantastic assistance from my sponsors/supporters, it is still a huge challenge to get to the races I need to in order to be competitive among the world’s best, support my training efforts, and continue to make ends meet in life outside of triathlon, despite working several jobs.

Please be sure to let me know who is donating so I can thank you personally for your kind contribution! No amount is too small, and I truly appreciate every bit!

I am extremely grateful of all the support I have received in working to pursue my dreams. I know many of you are not in a place to be able to donate, but still continue to support me in so many ways that are truly immeasurable, and I cannot thank you enough for that. I feel incredibly blessed to be part of such a wonderful community of family, friends, fellow athletes, and others who have done so much to make me feel supported and encouraged in my efforts to achieve my goals. I am grateful beyond words. Chasing this dream has required a full investment in so many ways, and has called for many sacrifices in other aspects of life, but it has been worth it every step of the way, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Having so many fantastic people around me cheering me on, staying tuned in to my blog/results/experiences, and just sending words of encouragement only validates what I am doing that much more. THANK YOU, and I promise to continue doing my very best to make you all proud!

      Thank you so much, Sue, for the kind donation. I appreciate it so much! I am humbled and honored by all of the amazing support I’ve seen from our community this season. What a special place we live in! And I will be around for one more year at NTHS, so the kids aren’t rid of me just yet! 😉 Looking forward to it!! Thanks so much again!
