Last summer I moved to Lenbrook primarily because I wanted to help make things easier for my children when and if I need additional care. But now that I'm here, I often wonder why I didn't make the move sooner! Atlanta's been my home since 1956, so in addition to my new friends at Lenbrook, I have all of my "old" friends and outside activities too. I have to keep a calendar to blend my Lenbrook life and my "outside life."
This was the mantra written on my hand when I started the 2017 IRONMAN Florida race in November. Although the black Sharpie ink faded as the miles passed by, the message was embedded in my mind. These three words represented a very simple but important race strategy for me. Why did I choose this mantra? Let me offer a closer look at my Ironman journey and the parallels to my role here at Lenbrook.
