I’m so proud of this boy. Life has been hard on everyone the past few years. But John’s carried a pretty big burden – parental caregiving, successful but intense workload, managing his own MS in this challenging health environment, the loss of my mom, loss of our Lucy dog, being so loving and helpful to my dad as he rebuilds his life, taking beautiful care of me (no easy task!) and Hudson and our home (including a full bathroom remodel), on and on. He rarely takes time for himself.
Two (!) weeks ago, he announced to me he wanted to run a #sprinttriathlon. His fourth, but it had been a minute since he’d run one. And he did it! He got his fitness where it needed to be, prepared mentally, and completed his mission on Saturday at the #CerealCityTriathlon.
I couldn’t be there, but I awoke (in Vegas) Saturday morning to this photo via text (the wonders of time zones!) and it brought such happy tears to my eyes. The joy and the sense of accomplishment are evident in his expression.
I’m so proud of you: John Mola, four-time (and counting!) #triathlete! 🙌✨ Love you so much!
Love you ❤️
