Well, the 2010 Aflac Iron Girl season has come to a close. What an honor it has been for me to have been such a part of the events this year. I will never forget the wonderful moments of emotion, inspiration and pure joy I have felt at each and every event.
Do I have a favorite moment? No, because how could I even begin to pick from all of them? The balloons at sunrise in Boulder, the chilly temperatures and warm hearts in Racine, all of the mother-daughter teams at the run events, the tears of joy as women who never thought they could do this crossed the finish line, the hugs and smiles and laughter of women exceeding their expectations...no, I could never pick a favorite.
To each and every woman I met, thank you over and again for sharing your stories with me, for letting all of us have a peak into your heartbreaks and healings, for sharing your joy of living each day to the fullest and for just being you. You are mothers, daughters and friends. You are heroes.
Enjoy the pictures from Aflac Iron Girl Tempe. Treasure the memories and come back to make more.
