Now I need a passport.
I am going here.
To do this.
A friend told me recently that she was trying to say Yes more often.
- Date Night (need more).
- Adventure (want more).
- That third glass of wine (so easy).
The Yes Mantra was echoing when I got this a couple of weeks ago.
The greatest year of my life? After this, heck yes.
A group of us are headed to Roth, Germany in July 2016 for DATEV Challenge Roth, the world’s largest long distance triathlon. The purpose is to raise money and INTERNATIONAL awareness of the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation dedicated to erasing stigmas associated with teenage anxiety and depression and to developing and providing programs that help. Promoting the legacy message of my angel niece is a life’s calling to which I will always answer YES.
- I have never been to Europe.
- I have never done a race this long.
- I never thought I’d have to wait to see her again.
And so we do all there is to do. We fill our days with people and purpose we love.
We aren’t stopping with German beer. After some Bavarian pilsner we set our sites on Oatmeal Creme Pies at in Smoky Mountains of Tennessee for Little Debbie Ironman Chattanooga.
Do more than I ever thought I could do in one year??? Ummmm yes.
Do I believe I will cross the finish line after traversing 140.6 miles twice in a year?
So I have a lot of training, a ton of yoga, a ocean of gratitude for my family’s support and a blog to write. Will you hang with me for this amazing journey?
Please say yes.
