At the finish line with the great Charlie Plaskon! Charlie is 68 years old and has been blind since birth and has completed over 6 Ironmans including Kona! I ran so hard over to the finish line after he came through to meet him. What an honor it was to talk with him! I told him that I would be forever changed seeing him compete and crossing that finish line. I will NEVER forget this! Check out his website for his full bio and be AMAZED and inspired!!

Here is an incredible video of the Texas Ironman which was just recently held in my city, The Woodlands. TX. Watch the entire video and then tell me if you are not amazed at all these incredible athletes! Look closely 3:31 mins into the video and there I am with my BIG pink sign cheering everyone along! You cannot see me, just my sign!! : ) I am going to watch this video about a thousands times between now and when I complete my first IM. SO motivating!!
My sign to look for in the video! Some day soon it will be me actually competing in the video not just holding a sign :)
