Each and every week, one of our Sisters is chosen by another Sister to be highlighted in the Sisterhood Spotlight. Last week, Beki was our featured Sister and that means she gets to pass the torch on to another deserving woman this week! I must add that I wholeheartedly agree with her choice, as this woman is SUCH an inspiration to me as well!
I can’t tell you how awesome it made me feel to open last week’s sister spotlight and see that Renee had nominated me! I cried (ya, I do that all the time) and then I smiled for hours!
Now it’s my turn.
I am picking a sister who has inspired me, and offered me supportive words from the first challenge I ever participated in at the Sisterhood. She gave me great advice when I was training for my first sprint triathlon (telling me to frolic in the water before the triathlon started was one of my favorite tips). This woman is super encouraging, funny, dedicated and inspires me to push myself further!
I’m talking about Christie O! She’s a mom of 2 boys and an editor here at the Sisterhood. Christie began her weight loss journey 2 years ago and has been successful at keeping the weight off! She just celebrated the anniversary of her first in triathlon and is currently training for the Miami Man half triathlon in November, and the Full Disney marathon in January 2011. She ran/walked on a treadmill in a mall all day to raise money for Team in Training, and then she ran the San Diego Rock ‘n Roll half marathon (in a tutu) in 2 hours 36 minutes! She is truly a triathlete, an athlete and a complete inspiration! Thank you Christie for being you!
