Within the last year, I had a major surgery & a few months later was hospitalized for multiple life threatening blood clots in my lungs. My drs told me it was a miracle I was still alive. I was told I could forget about working out going forward. 2 weeks after getting out of the hospital, I decided I wanted to see if I could do a triathlon to prove everyone wrong. I signed up for a super sprint, then started training. It was more challenging than I had anticipated & my progress was slow. When the event came around, I surprised myself & placed 2nd in my age group. I’m constantly setting bigger goals & signed up for a few events for 2020 already. Excited to push myself & have fun competing.
