Sad News…

This earth lost a special man, loving father, husband and triathlete this week. My friend, training partner and beloved supporter Bernie Garruppo passed away on Tuesday. It is with great sorrow that I write this knowing that he won’t be in the pool to push me, on the bike to accompany and challenge me or just be around to glow in discussing family. His ardent passion and dedication for the sport of triathlon is so evident in this picture after finishing the Ironman World Championships just a few short weeks ago in Kona, his 14th Ironman:) I had the pleasure to follow on this, a long time dream for him. As I grieve, his wife Mary Ann reminded me that “In heaven, he is competing in Ironman every day, so he is happy and at peace.” Happy thoughts:) Tri on Bernie…
