I am the mother of three, psychiatric nurse, recovering alcoholic/addict and rheumatoid arthritis warrior. I was diagnosed with RA in 2005, got sober in 2008 and started running in 2011 followed by triathlon in 2013. I swim, bike and run because it reminds me that I can do just about anything I set my mind to. From 2010 to 2013, I lost 80+ pounds and have kept most of it off for the past 6 years. I love setting goals that both excite and terrify me. My coach always reminds me that we think we know everything about ourselves and often, that is the very thing that limits us. So I try to forget the story I've told myself about who I am and what I'm capable of - this allows me to take chances and reach for things I never thought possible. I've been able to run 7 marathons, a 50k, a 55k and a half Ironman which continues to amaze me as when I was diagnosed in 2005, I thought my life as I knew it was over.
