Now if it was a little cold, I would have pushed through and raced. But the ending results of this stomach flu lead to a loss of 4 lbs in a matter of 2 days. There are times when you know you shouldnt do something and this was one of those times.
The reason for this post is to thank a wonderful DAILYMILE friend Simon Mutlu for introducing me to his runner partner Tara Carriera an ELITE runner out of Livermore, CA. Simon had saw a post on DAILYMILE about my interest in participating in the TREK TRI and told me about his friend Tara. We were then introduced via email and Tara offered to give me her free entry into the TREK TRIATHLON. Being a SAHM and on a budget, the offer was truly a Godsend, but I guess it wasn't my weekend to race. Thank you again to Tara for offering your entry, and to Simon for introducing us! Was so thrilled to have you offer to connect us!
*Sigh* All my friends that I know personally and via the internet are truly amazing. Thankful for everyone that I've ever come across , ya'll have impacted my life deeply. I hope I can give back to you all as much as you have given me!
