Barnett and Russell Reign in Raleigh
“Embrace the Battle.” That was my mantra at Sunday’s @ironmantri #IM703Raleigh Embrace the battle with confidence and courage every step, every stroke, every second, mile, and moment. What a blissful finish line and I am JUST SO GRATEFUL!!!!! Thank you to my team, we fought hard and today was ours! Appreciation to the venue, race directors, volunteers, to my homestay family and their incredible kiddos, my fellow pro female competitors who each inspire me in their own ways. They may not know it but they do. I love this race, the town and the course and am SO grateful God was shining down on me – I’m still so overwhelmed with emotions. I’ll never forget this one.
What a weekend it was in Raleigh! Congrats to the 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 Raleigh Champions Lauren Barnett (Former Rudy Project Sales Manager) and Matt Russell! Shout out to Meredith Kessler, James Hadley, and Richie Cunningham for their podium finishes as well. Read more: http://bit.ly/1X8RwWw
