Hey guys and gals,

A friend of mine is submitting a video to WTC to become a Kona Inspired Athlete this year. Her name's Amy, is a PT in Kansas City, and is probably one of the first triathletes I met. Honestly, she is the sole person who pushed me to do my first tri and gave me advice. Last year, she was diagnosed with Lyme's Disease, and is still affected by it. I remember working with her while she was starting to see symptoms, and still think about how scared $h!tless I'd be. Regardless, she still trained and competed, and at a high level.

Here is a link to her video:

Please vote for her! I know her dream is to get to Kona! I believe you just vote at the bottom left hand corner of the video...

And if you'd share it too, I know she'd appreciate it! Let's get someone to represent the Midwest!

Do me a favor, have Amy do a short write up of her situation and email it to me with some pictures I can use to write some articles and spread that way!

This is an article about attending my first triathlon (as a spectator - I had never entertained the possibility of actually participating one before!), and how inspiring and motivating I found it.

In November of 2000, I noticed that I was losing the feeling in my toes. The sensation traveled up my body and within a week, I was nearly 80% paralyzed.

So far the taper is feeling good and I'm getting that itchy feeling to race. I know this will grow even stronger when I get to the island and see my friends and PBN Team members.

Definitely glad this weekend is out of the way as 145 miles of cycling and 27 miles of running in two days is a fair amount.
