Well, turns out I have not had a professional photographer following me on all my training sessions taking cool Instagram shots over the past few months...There is indeed a boy (shocker, I know ;)... And he happens to be racing the big race in Hawaii on October 12th and I am more than thrilled to be #1 support crew for him. (Well, I'll have to fight his Dad, mom, & sister for the #1 title, but I'm pretty scrappy, so put your $ on me please).
Luke's been top 10 in the professional field here before and after watching his preparation and seeing his current form, I'm pretty excited to see how the Ironman World Champs unfold this year. As he's been my #1 supporter over the past few months helping me turn around a bumpy season, I can't wait to be the one doing all the supporting. For someone that puts seemingly everything into his job as a triathlete, he somehow puts even more into making life happy and good, which amazes me daily.

As for me, I'm hunkering down getting back to full-on training after Ironman Wisconsin and loving the new scenery in Hawaii. The end of the year holds some fun racing- Miami 70.3 followed by an olympic distance race in the Bahamas, then finishing the year with another trip down under I believe... Yeah, so far so good on my "leave of absence" from work. I'm enjoying every minute, even sitting on the side of the Queek K in a torrential downpour with a flat tire. Because, hey, if that's my worst problem right now..... I'm doing alright.
