I am very excited to report that I am going to Kona for Ironman Kona in October!!  As the top Fundraiser for the Ironman Foundation, I have been told “Kristine you are going to Kona!”  This statement brings tears to my eyes.  It was because of all of you and your donations that got me to this spot!  Now the real work begins (not that raising money was easy)!

I went on a run today and realized – I have let myself go.  Makes me sad that I let work become my sole focus and stopped working out.  Well, that is going to change too.  Work is super important to me, but starting on Tuesday I am not going to work 60+ hours each week.  I have to balance out my work and give some of that time to my family and me personally.   I guess that is a goal for 2017 – Balance my Life.

Thanks everyone for all your support.  I hope you will follow me on my Journey to Kona!  Happy New Year!
