Let me start off by saying thank you to everyone who supported me and encouraged me throughout the year. I am incredibly grateful to have such a tremendous group of friends and family that continue to cheer for me and motivate me. Yes, your words, hugs, and well wishes mean a great deal to me at each and every race. None of this would have been possible without the incredible guidance, constant support, and exceptional training from my coach, my friend, and my inspiration - Will Mackie. Hours and hours and hours went in to training to get me ready for Tahoe and Will was always there challenging me every step of the way. I saved the most important thank you for last. By far the greatest appreciation goes to my husband, Mark.
