One Picture

Today marks the end of my YOU Challenge! This means I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos EVER with you.

10 day you challenge

I’m sure it’s pretty obvious that I would choose a photo from Ironman Mont-Tremblant as one of my favorite photos. I mean, how could I not?! The hard part was deciding on which one. While I did pay for the ‘official finisher photo’ which I love, there is another photo that I love even more which really captures my emotion on that day. The entire Ironman experience from training to race day was SO emotional and life changing. 

I was lucky enough to have my entire cheering squad at the finish line, and my mom captured this beautiful moment:

 This says it all:

As soon as I rounded the corner into the finisher chute, I started to cry… I did it! I was about to cross that finish line.  No one can ever take this moment away from me and I will cherish it forever.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.

    I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
