“I am not sure why this has taken me this long to write but I think it might have to do with the fact that I have been on such a high from the event that I am finally coming back to reality.
I just wanted to send you an email to say THANK U. Like I said, I have been in this sport for 18 years and have achieved some pretty cool things which i thought couldn’t be topped. I have raced professionally, been to Kona, won some races but NOTHING can compare to the 3 days I had during the 520k. It allowed me to go back to the reason I started doing triathlons many years ago. The weekend wasn’t about if I was going to win or how fast I was going to go, but if I was going to finish.
The atmosphere that was created is like no other and your speech during day 1, like I mentioned, really hit home for me. I feel like this is just the beginning for me in this ultra world and I am excited! I truly believe I found a new tri “family” and that is thanks to you.
I wish I could come back next year but I signed up for Ironman Lake Placid before I left not knowing how much I would fall in love with the race and it is the weekend before.
Basically what I am trying to say is THANK YOU!!!!! Being part of the 520K Canada has been amazing and renewed my love for the sport :)”
