I want to thank Jack for helping me keep some perspective and looking at things in a different way. For an 11 1/2 year old young man... he's incredibly insightful and wise. Thanks Jack.
I want to thank Lila for being the consummate cheerleader and smiley face on the sidelines, shouting louder than any 8 year old little girl should be able to! Thanks Lila.
I want to thank Tom for constantly asking, "Dad! Are you tria-fah-loning today?!", and "Did you win?". At 5 years old... he understands the need to compete. Thanks Tom.
I want to thank my wife Kathryn for picking up the slack at times on the household front and supporting me without question. Thanks Kathryn.
I want to thank my coach, Elizabeth. Without her help so far this year, I would have been completely lost. She was calm and patient with me... which is NOT easy. Thanks Liz.
Thanks to you guys too. All you creepy internet folks. Its unbelievable to me how much love and support I've felt from all of you. Thanks creepy internet folks.
