True strength lies in submission which permits one to dedicate his life, through devotion, to something beyond himself.” - Henry Miller

This morning I said goodbye to my baby sister, Holly, as she left home to enroll at the United States Naval Academy.

Triathlon requires commitment. Ending homelessness requires devotion. But I have learned dedication from Holly. She had a dream and today it comes true as she begins Plebe Summer.

This month, early morning alarms, long, hot runs, and endless yards in the pool are dedicated to her.
