So I’ve been keeping a little secret…

I have applied to Become ONE!

got chocolate milk? is having a contest which will give two lucky winners the Ironman experience of a lifetime.  This program includes:

  • A customized seven-month training program in their hometown with elite IRONMAN coaches
  • Seven months of lowfat chocolate milk to refuel and recover between workouts
  • Entry into 3-5 IRONMAN training events, to be determined by their coach
  • Any equipment or gear necessary to train and fully recover effectively
  • Entry into, and 2 round-trip airline tickets and lodging for, the 2013 IRONMAN World Championship in Kona-Kailua, Hawaii

For the past two years, I have signed up for Ironman competitions, had them on my racing calendar, begun training…only to find out I was pregnant.  Pregnancy and my two little boys are the best things in my life…but I’m definitely itching to fulfill what has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember.

2013 is going to be the year I call myself an Ironman.

But I need your help!  

Part of the application process required creating a video to explain why we should be picked, why we want to be an Ironman, why we would inspire others…

I would LOVE any help spreading the word about my video and any likes/comments on the site (youtube) itself (if you think I should be picked!)

Thank you so much for your help!!

My application can be found here. 


Are we connected???


Don’t forget to sign up for the RACE FOR RECOVERY 5k/10k!  

We have almost 200 runners from across the country (and world!) participating (and have raised over $7,600)!!

    2. As far as I am concerned (and likely anyone who has ever read your blog), you are already ONE. But either way, I will definitely share your video around- it is terrific! Best of luck, and hope you get it!! You definitely deserve it.

      Also, isn’t it funny how we endurance athletes think? Everyone saying you “deserve” the chance to train for and compete in a race where you have the “opportunity” to swim almost 2.5 miles, bike over 100, AND THEN run a marathon. We are a funny sort, that is for sure.
