So near

It's 3:45 in the chilly, rainy morning. As I get ready to pack up and leave for Smithville, a moment to reflect on the journey:

1993 - self-defined as unlovable fat girl
2004 - started coming to terms with an eating disorder
2006 - started coming to terms with self-loathing
2007 - stopped trying to lose weight
2008 - months pass without disordered eating
2009 - started proving to myself that this body could be strong

This morning: I AM A TRIATHLETE.

Sending a heartfelt thanks out this morning to all the friends who have wished me well. I hope you know what a difference you make in the lives you touch!
