What really got me FIRED UP was being in the company of fellow wounded/disabled warriors . These great Americans were out CRUSHING IT with other triathletes despite their injuries.
Wounded/disabled warriors like myself have to deal with the baggage of our injuries. That is where the power of team comes in to play and organizations like Team Red, White, and Blue empower veterans whether wounded/disabled or not, to make changes not excuses. As a wounded warrior I learned to challenge the baggage I had from being wounded with the support of family and friends.
Racing with other wounded/disabled warriors is source of energy and inspiration. I am looking forward to my next race.
Keep Fighting! Never Quit!
