EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2017
It has always been a dream of mine to compete in an Iron Man. Since I began playing sports, I have always wanted to challenge myself. I've competed in rowing, swimming, boxing, and so many other sports to push myself to my furthest limits. An Iron Man felt like a natural transition for me. I love the early morning workouts and being the last person in the gym and always want to push my mental strength. A competitive spirit has always driven me in all areas of life, but this half Iron Man is where I will get to express it physically, emotionally, mentally, and basically every other aspect you can name. This summer I challenged my mental strength and trained constantly. I wanted to prove to myself that I could not only finish an event like this, but also compete in it.
We've all be impacted by cancer in one way or another. By joining the STOMP team, I am helping to do my part and give back to others by giving financial and other support to cancer patients, their families and caregivers, including transportation, gas money, food cards, assistance paying bills, and much more. I did not want to just join a team in my first Iron Man, but help raise awareness for a great cause. STOMP promotes a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise, something that, if you know me, I standby and promote every day. Additionally, STOMP promotes funding for potential advances in prevention and treatment. Any donation is appreciated and thank you for the great support!
