My first blog post as part of a series produced by The Huffington Post in conjunction with the Sochi 2014 Olympics is now live. The series is part of the Impact Sports initiative, which examines the intersection of sports and social good. I was connected to HuffPost through You Can Play Project and I’m super excited to see it posted.
The post is basically about the day my Olympic dream died. Writing it was a challenge, because it puts me at risk for ineligibility in triathlon, but I think it is an important read. I also know that the comments will probably turn to a stream of “what is fair” so I’ll likely avoid them.

And special thanks to Christina Kahrl, who took time to look it over when I was nervous and needed an extra set of eyes.
