Yay!!! Just wrapped up my story which means I'm about to hit the road to get in some quality basketball watching the rest of the day! :) Ahh, the benefits of waking up at the crack of dawn!
Sunrise was great this morning. I had a lot of fun (as usual) with Dan and Byron…even got to show some team spirit and put on my IU t-shirt at the very end of the show.
I hope you'll tune in tonight at 6 to check out my story. It's an uplifting one. Really, by my standards, I've done pretty well this week. I think 4 of the 5 longer stories (we call them packages) I did were positive and happy! Tonight's is about a special guest USI had on campus last night and today.
In 2004, Melissa Stockwell became the first woman to lose a limb in the Iraq War. Since then, she's become a 3-time Paratriathlon World Champion and Paralympian (not to mention a Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient). Right now, she's training for her first Ironman competition. I caught up with her as she did a spinning class with USI students on campus this morning. Very cool!
Love all the positivity this week, so I'm definitely hoping it carries over into next (and beyond)…
Have a FANTASTIC weekend!
Until next time,
