Journey’s End with Maridee:
Here are a few of the great memories of the 2013 Whistler Ironman:

Maridee gave us a great, exhilarating ride as we all shared in her dedication, her difficulties and ultimately, her triumph. From the first rush of entering the water, to grinding it out on the bike and the run and finally, after a very long day, to the welcome comfort of the tinfoil blanket, she took us with her.
And all of Maridee’s training paid off, because where most of the finishers had difficulty ascending the 4 concrete steps to the Olympic Rings in Whistler Village, I witnessed her bounding up more and steeper steps than these (below) in order to get home after the race. MD is literally climbing higher every day.
Thanks, Maridee. We will wait patiently for your next adventure but in the meantime, you will forever be our IRONMAN!
