Make Changes Not Excuses - Challenge The Baggage

Last weekend I raced in the West Point Triathlon as a father-son relay team. It was inspirational seeing the teamwork in action as Team RWB members from six different chapters.

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!
