Today I was lucky enough to be featured on Fox & Friends with my good friend, Amy Dixon. Anna Kooiman did a piece on guiding visually impaired athletes in triathlon. She also featured Team RWB, which has provided many VI athletes with amazing, capable guides. I am thrilled with how this turned out!
Rachel Weeks and I were lucky enough to be asked to speak with Pace Per Mile before Ironman Texas. We were also asked back to discuss how the race went and to tell listeners about Team Red, White & Blue’s mission. Here are the links for both interviews. If you are interested in hearing our first hand account of how IMTX went or if you’d like to learn more about Team RWB, please take the time to listen!

Rachel Weeks is the first athlete with Usher Syndrome, a condition that has caused her to lose her vision and hearing, to finish an IRONMAN TRIATHLON. Check her out at 2:38 and 7:29 in the official Ironman Race Day video from Ironman Texas 2013.

This video illustrates the importance of Team RWB. I am honored to be a part of such an incredible organization that is working to improve the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.
