#triweek asked #whatsyourfinishline and how we started our journey to #Tri I was a runner who broke her leg in a #nightultra race. I felt lost when I couldn’t do what I loved, but determined to not let it get me down. I took up swimming and cycling until I was cleared to run and a #triathlete was born. Over the following 2 years I had to undergo 3 additional surgeries. One to remove a lump from my breast, one to remove a screw from my ankle, and then most recently one to repair a shoulder injury. Each surgery had its own setbacks but after each I was determined more than ever to push myself to be stronger than I was before. To Tri for all those that could no longer do the things they love. #triathlon has helped me find my #why it has given me strength and purpose, and now I try and #giveback whenever possible and get others to Tri and find their why #timetotri #iamanironman #usat #relentless #womenfortri #whywetri @usatriathlon
