Hats Off to the OPA Team and Athletes!

Of course I was up much earlier than necessary this morning but I feel great nonetheless! At last night's meeting I had a chance to learn a little bit more about the OPA and listening to the team speak you understand why you're greeted with “Welcome to the Family”. Regular people with great achievements in the industry. Why “regular” people? Because they are open, approachable and here for the athletes. They are passionate about the sport. They get it and they are individuals who make a difference. And then there'Stephanie Worsfold's infectious smile - the constant reminder to have fun! Something else that really struck me was looking up at the panel and seeing a mother holding her new born. A few seats down another expectant mother. How great is that! As a mother and competitor I am so proud to see this. Anyone who has participated in this sport understands that raising a family, running a home and business while competing – not easy! Every athlete has their own personal story. What connects us the hard work and dedication to get here. And I'm here to enjoy the ride, every step of the way!

enjoy yourself in good health and fitness/gena
