The Definition of a Class Act

From Ed, in my triclub, who has since moved but posted this on our forum and I just had to share. He just finished Ironman Arizona.

If you read his post here, it will explain who Ellen is and why Ed gives her his finisher's medal.

This is truly what it's all about.

Pray for Ellen. When he put the "prize" around her neck - I lost it! Life is short. WOW.

Oh that was amazing!

btw I generally get dropped in group rides as well. my goal two years ago was to drop as much water time as I could from their rest stop :-) They were cursing me by the end of the season when I pulled in seconds following them- keep up the training!
