Kelly says " Today I completed my first triathlon I have been writing this status update in my head for the last 6 months, so please bear with me - it's a wee bit long - as I fill you in on how I got here. The thought of this a year ago seemed impossible - after the most challenging working year of my career, I wasn't in a good place physically. So last September I decided that I needed to make a change - and I did...this last year has been the YEAR OF ME. I joined Jenny Craig, and have lost over 30 lbs - I still have more to lose, but I'm still going...and still plan to fit back into my wedding dress by my 5th anniversary in October. I also started working out - and after hiding on my treadmill in my basement for a few months, joined Mommy's in Motion and Babe's in Motion to train for the triathlon I kept thinking about how good it would feel to cross that finish line - and let me tell you...it was awesome. With tears coming down, I crossed the line - knowing that I had accomplished a huge goal. And you know what? I can't wait to do it again next year.
Marija says "So incredibly thankful and grateful for all the mental and physical support this summer and especially today. You have no idea how much I appreciated and absolutely NEEDED the company and mental strength in the home stretch this morning. Thank you doesn't even begin to express the level of my gratitude. I'm not sure I couldn't done it without you all. And I certainly wouldn't have been able to pass those two ladies without Nancy Hastings motivation. "
Coach Gail says " So thankful I didn't have to do this journey alone! Thank you ladies for your words of support and encouragement all through the summer and today at the race! Thank you Coach Nancy and Scott for giving me that extra help that I needed!!
Crossing the finish line today was awesome....so awesome that I cried like a baby!! LOL!
