Finally put the finishing touches on my display. Growing up, I had never participated in any sports. I have been overweight most of my adult life & when confronted with health risks, I decided to do something about it. My first attempt running a 5k was in 2012. When I realized I could do it, I was excited & motivated. I have even placed in my age group in a 5k several years back. I have worked with great trainers & coaches over the years. I have completed multiple 1/2 marathons, a full marathon, 4 yrs of Spartan Races earning a Trifecta medal each yr from 2014-2017 including 2 Texas Trifectas. I decided in 2018, my 3rd yr of Tris, to focus strictly on training for Tris. Next is the Kerrville Tri in a couple of weeks which will complete the 4th of 4 races in the Texas Tri Series! A personal goal I have been working towards. I am also registered to complete IronMan Waco 70.3 in late October. I have been blessed meeting so many like minded people on my journey who are not only supportive and motivating, but also inspiring. I will be 53 this December & as they say, age is just a number. Find something you love, set some goals, make a plan & go for it!
Thanks to my brother-in-law @flatback_leather for the leather & woodwork.
