My family's names were also announced on the loud speaker for everyone to hear which was a great touch and they loved it. They were such a huge part of my day and I am proud and glad they were acknowledged for their hard work.
I want to also say thank you to Walabax Construction Services, Inc., for supporting me as the Championship Race Sponsor for the Ironman World Championships. Also, thank you to Dr. Marnie O'Brien of Lehigh Valley Eye Center, P.C. and the Carosella Family for playing integral rolls for getting me to Hawaii. Thank you to my coach Todd Wiley, of TWiley Sports, for preparing yet again for a great race. I owe so much to him for constantly keeping me on the right path. To all my other financial and product sponsors: The Bridgeton Group, Popeye 21, Profile Design, Gatorade, Fitness Central, Blue Seventy, Honey Stinger, PXT, and TRY Chips. Finally thank you to my Fine Line Racing Team, the Rodale Aquatic Center Master's swim team, and to all my family and friends who have supported me throughout this season and who supported me through this race. I truly appreciate each one of you and the roles you have all taken to help me get to were I am at today. THANK YOU!!!!
