After learning more than I ever really wanted to about how to create a website, I launched yesterday. If I ever had any doubt in my mind that I was truly going to participate in this race- it's gone. At this point, sitting in front of a computer for hours seems harder to me than rowing for hours on end. Yes, I know, I will regret having said that- especially when I am ass-deep in salt water rowing through the first of many foul weather days out on the open ocean.

I feel grateful and loved by my friends and family who have checked out the site and who have given me both positive feedback and constructive criticism. Each item I tick off my never ending list of things to do to get me to the start line is so important to me- it builds me up; empowers me, and reminds me that I am very much not alone on my journey. I am very much- not alone.
