I know it is a day late, but none the less I feel like I should do the standard “Things I am thankful for.” For starters I am living a dream. Every day I wake up and get to continue chasing my dreams of greatness as a triathlete and there are plenty of people I need to thank for that.
Most of all thanks to my family, Kit, Bob, and Brandon, for their never ending love and support. They have backed my decision to forgo a 9-5 and chase my dreams, and for that I will forever be grateful. Thanks to my friends for supporting me and always making sure I remember how good I have it. Thanks to my coaches, Grant and Neal, for continuing to help make my dreams a reality, and my sponsors for making sure I have the tools I need. Finally, thanks to all the people that have ever believed in me and my dreams, and when those little doubts creep in, for making sure I always think it all the way through.
I am thankful for my health and that of all my friends and family. I sometimes wish I could get a replacement foot, but it is getting better all the time. I am thankful for the wonderful role models I have, who keep me on the right track and help me along the way. I am thankful for being a Hawkeye and love being a part of everything IOWA. I am thankful for having the ability to live every day to the fullest, and making the most of every situation.
What are you thankful for? Have you told them lately…
