This is the story I posted on my Facebook page the week of Ironman. Needless to say, Fellow Flowers and Declare It Day were a huge part of it. My friends held another Declare It Day ceremony the day I registered for Ironman, just to make it official. Here is my story…
It’s Ironman Week! As race day approaches, I can’t help but remember and reflect on how and why I started this amazing journey. These 4 photos tell a large part of the story.

Declare It Day 2015 truly held exponential magnitude in the goals that I set and how my life has significantly changed in the last year. I hosted a DID event just three weeks after my most recent heart surgery. I knew going into DID that I wanted to really stretch myself. Being surrounded by women, absolutely incredible and wonderful women that were also stretching and aiming to improve themselves I felt that I could make things happen. So I did.

Declare it Day 2015 was a huge part of one of the most transformative years of my life. A month earlier, after a friend challenged me, I had signed up for Her Madison Half Marathon. Never having run more than 4 miles, and not being a natural athlete, this goal terrified me. I truly didn’t know how I would do it.
