So today was a pretty emotional day for me… In racing the Ironman Timberman 70.3 today, I returned to my IM roots as Timberman was my first half IM back in 2012. When I raced back in 2012, my sister Heidi Frost Emmons was fighting for her life in a battle with cancer that she would lose a week after the race. :(

She is and always has been the driving force behind my racing and is always with me on every swim, bike and run I do.

In addition to having many memories of my 2012 race (only my 2nd ever 1/2 marathon and my first 1.2 mile swim - Yes - I was petrified I would never make it out of thee water), I was also racing today wearing bib #179. The bib Jon Blaise wore when he raced Ironman Kona in 2004 while battling the deadly disease ALS. He would return to Kona a year later, confined to a wheelchair due to the deadly disease, and would pass away shortly afterwards. His life and spirit continue to inspire. I am very thankful that I crossed paths with Jon's parents in the spring (Mary Ann Blais and Robert Blais). When Mary Ann slipped a "War on ALS" bracelet on me, I was truly humbled and very happy to join the Blazeman team.

Jon was famous for rolling across the finish line in Kona, so when I crossed the finish today, I rolled across. When Andy Potts saw me do this, he came over and gave me a hug, put a medal around my neck and said "thank you" for completing a Blazeman roll.

When one of the absolute best in your sport seeks you out to say “thanks”, it truly is a special day.

I did not have the run I had hoped for today as the heat really kicked my butt, but I am very happy that I raced Timberman again and am truly honored to have been selected to wear Bib #179.
