I Tri because she loved this dream of mine into existence. Years ago, my Mom encouraged, believed, and loved me to the finish of my first triathlon, something that changed my whole life. This year, I was given the overwhelming honor of sharing her journey to her first Half Ironman. Three weeks ago, we toed the line together in Augusta, and we found a finish line again. I will never have words to describe this moment, this picture will have to suffice. This is the heart of Tri. This is the meaning of this sport. This is Why We Tri. #inspiration #ironman #im703augusta #whywetri #strong #womenwithmuscles #myheart #StrongerThanHAE #bebrave #triathlon #trilife #triathlete #girlswholift #fit#fitnessvation #strongwomen #mom #daughter #fitness #swim #bike #run #zoot #colors #love #AsthmaticTriathlete @whywetri @ironmantri @zootsports @top_triathletes @triathlonloversmagazine

My disease is not my definition! Just because something is harder for me does not mean I can't do it, I am the only one who can limit me. 9 weeks out from #im703augusta, focused and working hard! #WhyWeTri #StrongerThanHAE #run #triathlete #training #AsthmaticTriathlete #denver #colorado #womenfortri #str#strongwomen #thunderthighs #girlswholift #lgbt #lamarathon2017 #300daysofsunshine #usat #trilife #imtraining #shorthair #rainbow #happy #bebrave #running #newbalance #refusetoquit #strong #triathlon #ThisIsIronman #HereditaryAngioedema

Do it anyway. . . . "I'm so tired...". Do it anyway. "It hurts". Do it anyway. "It's a million degrees and the sun is trying to kill me". Do it anyway. "I don't want to". Do it anyway. Get up. Keep moving. And do it anyway. #StrongerThanHAE #AsthmaticTriathlete #triathlon #training #run #newbalance #denverlife #300daysofsunshine #color #summer #sohot #strongwomen #girlswholift #thunderthighs #BringItOn #im703augusta #triathlete #determination #inspiration #IRONMANtraining #HereditaryAngioedema

Today was one of those "Would rather die than do my run" days. Tired, wheezing, and did NOT want to slog through the melting snow. Now I'm so happy I got out there. It wasn't fast, but god was it good! #colorado #wind #triathlon #training #run #asics #sun #Snow #Triathlete #beautiful #spring #denverlife #purplehair #augusta703 #girlswholift #StrongerThanHAE #AsthmaticTriathlete #strongwomen

People constantly give me excuses for why they can't run, or do other exercises. Trust me, I've got plenty. I have a family with a 2 year old and (almost) 6 year old. I work full time. I have asthma. Luckily I have a husband that supports my dream and helps me make it happen. You have to have the drive in you if you want to do something. Don't tell me you can't run. Just tell me you don't want to. #triathlon #triathlete #triathlonlife #swimbikerun #astma #asthmatictriathlete
