IM Story #1: Ironmom

I got my mom a t-shirt that read “Ironmom” to wear during the race. This would still be true about my mom if I’d never mentioned a thing about Ironman. She is and has always been fiercely independent, able and willing to do pretty much all things that need to be done on her own. More than just for her support of my Ironman efforts, I owe her thanks for most everything I have and am today. All the things I could remember and write about to further emphasize this wouldn’t be enough. She came all the way from Texas to cheer me on!

Talk about stories. She has some great ones.
After I ran my first marathon, my mom said “Promise me this will be it!”

I broke my promise. Sorry, Mom!
