Three years ago at my Ironman in Idaho I struggled on the last 13 miles of the run to finish. Amy was wearing a shirt “Iron Baby on Board” that day when Ainsley was just in her womb. All I could think about was making my unborn daughter proud of her Daddy. She was truly my inspiration that day!
Fast forward to last Sunday, I did my first off-road triathlon since that day 3 years ago. She was still an inspiration but I got to thank her in person outside the womb by putting my medal around her neck!
Listen I’m loving and so proud of the “VP Boys” as I call them, but having a little girl has been a joy that only those of you Dads can know.
Ainsley’s name means “ones own meadow”. She’s already at 2 1/2 years a determined little girl and I’m blessed that I get to raise her up! Hope to keep making her proud!
