The love of my life, Auralia Elizabeth Tortomasi, is gearing up to turn three this spring. These past three years have been trial and error at best. I am far from the many elite athletes whom I admire (Hello! Lauren Fleshman!). However, I am a full-time educator, wife, coach, advisor, runner, and most importantly, mommy. If you are like me, you realize that all of us have reached an elite status of our own.
