Olympic Trials are finished!

I competed and raced EVERY race!
5 Distances and 6 total races!

I can't begin to tell you how much JOY I've
experienced along this journey!
My heart is flowing over with AWE at the amount of
support and encouragement I received along the way.

Dreams are not just for the young.
They are for everyone!!
No Dream is to small or large.
Go after it!
Reach for it!
It's amazing the stuff you "catch" along the way

What I've learned and received on this journey is Bigger than the goal I set out to accomplish.

My Goal became a small start compared to what I became surrounded by

Looking forward to accomplishing much more with my Life.
It's a GIFT that I won't ever stop celebrating!

As a young Figure Skater I had a goal to compete in the 1984 Olympics. I was never able to complete this dream due to a eating disorder that took 14 years of my life. I am grateful to say I am sober 19 years. I have never lost site of my dream. As I have matured my dream has been altered and tweaked, but continues to be a burning desire within. My new goal has been set. I want to skate in the Olympic trails as a Long Track Speedskater. Two competition seasons later I am happy to say...

I HAVE QUALIFIED for OLYMPIC TRIALS at 50yrs YOUNG!!!

I need help as I embark on this last leg of this journey. I realize that I cannot do this alone and need your financial support. I have so far funded my own dreams through hard work, dedication, and the support of my Family. Living in Long Island, New York has had it's disadvantages. One of my challenges has been that the closest proper facility for training is in Milwaukee, Wis. Although this challenge has miles it hasn't stopped me from training on a slide board in my house everyday. I have been driven to show every person that they should NEVER give up on a dream no matter what the odds are. I am enjoying every step I take.

I look forward to your help in this endeavor. Feel free to share my story. At my age every ounce of help is gratefully received!
