I was later contacted by the organizers of the HyVee Triathlon and was told that I had earned a spot to race in the 5150 US Championships over this coming Labor Day Weekend.
I started racing in triathlon in 2009 and have now completed 15 triathlons including 2 Olympic Distance races and a 1/2 Ironman distance race. I race in triathlon for myself but also so that others can see that you should not limit yourself based upon preconceived physical barriers.
As far as I know, I am the only dwarf para-triathlete and I hope to continue racing and training so that I will be able to race at the Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2016.
I would be greatly appreciative of any size donation you can give and I also totally understand if you feel your money would be better suited for a more charitable fund. If you are unable to contribute financially, I hope I would be able to count on your moral support.
Thanks for taking the time to consider my request.
