Giving You Thanks 2013

In the United States, today is Thanksgiving Day. I wish to say thank you for all the wonderful times I have enjoyed this year to this point. I have only you thank for those memories and moments which have been so splendid. I wanted to list each moment and the individual or individuals who made it possible, but then I would be here for hours listing name after name and I would end up forgetting someone who would then be hurt for my lack of mentioning that person. Instead, I wish to offer a general note of appreciation to all who have taken part in my life this year. Do you read my blog entries? Do you follow me on Twitter at @SexyIsra? Are you one who is my friend at or in some way of social media connected to me? Then you are the one I am thanking today. Are you one who takes interest in my writing? Are you one who follows my marathon and triathlon journey as I qualify for Boston Marathon or win the Tri6A National championship in the US? Then, again, this message is to you! Thank you for being my friend and for reading my posts. I hope you find me and my work interesting enough to continue coming back for more and to tell your friends and loved ones about me. May you have a splendid day especially those celebrating with friends, family, and loved ones today. As always, please feel free to reach out to me and introduce yourself. I am always open to meeting new individuals who can enrich my life.

I will say a special thank you to Pinnacle Performance Company for sponsoring me during my 2013 marathon and triathlon season. Special thank you to Dare2Tri Chicago for including me on this season's Elite Team. Thank you to Kimberly Shah for including me on the 2013 NJOY Racing roster. Thank you to Matt Miller for always including me as part of the C Different Foundation family. Thank you to the fabulous Jenna Parker, jen Pfaff, Marrielle Monte, Amanda Marcheschi, Jen Knox, and Michelle Amor for always being there for me during my athletic and artistic ventures. In fact, these women are the reason I strive for greatness. I may not always achieve it, but they are the driving force as I pursue it. Thank you to you for taking the time to read this. May you have a spectacular day!

Katie, Don, Melissa At Ironman Arizona

On Sunday morning, November 17, three friends will take on the challenge of 140.6 miles through the heat of Arizona when they will each swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, then run 26.2 miles at the Ironman triathlon distance in Arizona. Three individuals who will add to their already impressive legacies as athletes and people. Three friends who have been important to the Team Sexy success. Katie Morse and Don Reichelt will each be aiming for completing yet another IM in their careers while Melissa Stockwell will be looking to join the IM club when she crosses the finish line for the first time ever. Each elite, great, and champion athlete will once again make personal and athletic history tomorrow and I wish all best wishes on such amazing races and experiences as they fulfill their dreams while being the spectacular and inspiring people they are at all times.

Katie's Inspirational Entry

Do you live with no regrets no apologies? Talented, amazing, and beautiful, actress, teacher, director, Laura Sturm taught me to do that when I was studying acting and movement with her. I had physical and emotional barriers which I put up, but which Laura helped me break down one brick at a time. Another woman who attempts to live life to the fullest is the beautiful, talented, and gifted Ironman triathlete, Katie Morse. I am so lucky and honored that Katie has been a supportive friend over the last few years. I have enjoyed watching her on her journey to superstardom. Katie is quite simply inspiring! One has a decision to make as to how to live life. One can either embrace the thrills of living or be content with merely existing. Katie is one who goes for it! Katie lives life. Katie is on the verge of racing in yet another Ironman triathlon this weekend. In fact, she is one of many who I know will take on the challenge of 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and 26.2 mile run in Arizona.

With Katie's permission, I wish to share one of her recent blog posts with you. It is quite moving and it had me excited to go out and live life. I hope you experience the same type of fulfillment in reading this entry. Enjoy.
