From May 6th - May 10th, I will be completing 5 Ironmans (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and 26.2 mile run) in 5 days on 5 islands of Hawaii, as part of an event called the EPIC5. In total, I will be covering 703 miles, so my goal is to raise $7,030 for Parkinson's research. My father was diagnosed a few years ago, and thanks to him for passing on his stubbornness, this is how I want to raise awareness!!

4/8/19: This post has been a long time coming but I just have not been able to find the words to express how grateful I am to these 3 people for joining me for EPIC 5. These 3 people are putting their life on hold for a little over a week to join me in Hawaii and be part of my crew. Many people don't realize how crucial the crew is, and trust me when I say yes its Hawaii but far from a relaxing vacation!!! In exactly 4 weeks we will be starting Ironman #1 of #5. These 3 people will get less sleep than I do, spend a majority of the trip in a van, feed me, and basically be my life support:) Mark Naphin, Stephanie Blades and David Blades no amount of words will ever cover how thankful I am. Lets make it EPIC:)
4/11/19: Today is World Parkinson’s Day!! Please help me honor the day and my dad by making a donation to my Bigfoot Endurance page. Raising funds through my EPIC 5 journey. $7,030 is the goal for 703 miles I will be covering over 5 days. Getting closer and closer to the event and my goal 💕💕💕💕💕
4/18/19: Wow wow wow on so many levels!!!! This time in 2 weeks will be on a plane heading to Hawaii for EPIC5. Even more excited is that I have hit $6,300 in my fundraising for Bigfoot Endurance and Parkinson’s research. Only $730 to go to hit my goal 💕💕Thank u to everyone who has donated so far and for all the kind words.

The support and kind messages mean so much and will carry it during the 5 days. 2 weeks from tomorrow it’s go time:) Still time if u would like to donate for Parkinson’s
4/25/19: OMG OMG OMG cannot believe this time next week we will be on a plane heading to Hawaii for EPIC 5!!!!!!! All the emotions going on. I am so thankful for all the people who have supported me through this journey whether it be with training, advice, motivational messages and most importantly those that made donation to BigFoot Endurance for Parkinson’s in honor of my dad. Still time to donate if u would like.
5/5/19: From the bottom of my heart, I cannot thank each of everyone of u for all the messages and Parkinson’s donations....I am truly blessed❤️❤️❤️ Tomorrow I will start with my heart full and a huge smile on my face. I am in amazing hands and know my crew and I will get it done. #sheeylexusteam#bigfootendurance #bigdreamsbigheart #igettodothis
