For the most part, I try to keep my eyes looking forward because if we are always looking back, we may miss great opportunities ahead. Every so often though it is important to look back at memories to avoid taking for granted the opportunities we've had in our past. People tell me that they are sorry to hear what I've had to go through with the loss of my vision. I would be lying to say there weren't hard times and changes to be made in my life but I will say that I've been blessed to be blind/VI. Looking back at the memories from the below photos tells the story of opportunity that I've had as a result of who I am. Take a short ride with me to look at some of the great opportunities and successes that I've had over my athletic career. Again, these opportunities have been amazing a life changing. I do not mention any of these to be boastful or prideful but rather for people to realize that when you maximize your potential as a human being and you always bring energy and passion to what you do, you will be granted opportunity and you will have success!
A PHOTO JOURNEY
2002 ITU World Championships: My first guide ever (Matt West) and I strolled by the Bimbo Chicks (girls in red and white outfits) to capture our first World Championship. It was a sweltering hot day in Cancun and I wasn't event even old enough to have a few drinks to celebrate. Yes, I was really that young when this all started!!!
