Ironman Maryland

Ironman Maryland!
Here’s my periscope broadcast announcing the IM Maryland for those that might be interested in my thoughts on it. (If you are new to periscope – comments/questions can pop up on the screen while you broadcast, but they are not visible in this YouTube replay. People also can give you hearts if they like what you are saying – also not visible on the replay.)

I am excited to announce I will be participating in my first Ironman 140.6 event in Maryland on Saturday October 3. Track me live on This is a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride followed by a 26.2 mile marathon. I have been training well and am excited to compete. The race is just over five weeks away! It will be just about one-year after I was hit by the truck on my bicycle. It has been a challenging year but I am so grateful to the friends, family and sponsors support I have received. You are ALL amazing! Your support means the world to me.
