    Oh your run sounds quite a bit like mine. Way to be so tough out there Sonja! Loved reading your report. So impressed with your racing savvy and how hard you worked all year long. Hope the foot is feeling better. Sub 10 or bust next year for us? :-)

    You are my hero! The fact that you can be feeling so bad and still fight HARD for what you want is so impressive. I look forward to seeing you get your sub 10 next year :)

    I always look forward to your posts, sonja, because they are so honest and they give us a good idea about what it takes to compete at your level.
    We are very proud of you, anyway, but this effort makes us admire you even more. Well done. 9.50.00 next year, I reckon.

    Wow. Just…wow. That photo of you where you say you can see your soul just gives me chills. “Way to push through” doesn’t even do your gutsy performance justice. Amazing job, Sonja.

    I just loved reading your 2011 Kona expenerience, congratulations, you did so very well!! I shouldn’t read this blog, it is too inspirational. I never wanted to go to Kona because the conditions look too harsh, so qualifying has never been my goal, but in what was going to be my final IM next March, after reading your blog, I’m going to try my hardest to qualify for Kona and make it my final IM. What an amazing experience!!

  16. PIC says:

    You toughed through the day and played your best hand. I’m so proud of you PIC:) BTW, that may be the only picture of you I have seen that has a fake smile. Last one OK?

  17. Christi says:

    Congrats Sonja! You are an inspiration to me yet again. I hope someday I can meet you in person because I really need to thank you for all the inspiration you do bring me!

    Wow. Just wow, there is so much heart in here. This was so honest, the pictures you posted show so clearly where you were. Thanks for sharing this – it must not have been easy to write.

  19. Some time ago, I did need to buy a good house for my firm but I did not earn enough money and could not purchase anything. Thank goodness my friend adviced to try to get the home loans at reliable creditors. Thence, I acted so and was happy with my small business loan.

    s darkened, so be sure to be safe rather than sorry, and don. You can buy swimsuits in floral and island prints
    to add more fun to your look at the beach. This way you
    can simply wear a light robe to prevent any post tan smearing issues.
