      I just want to say thanks to JSS and to this tribe. I work in a job where so many women see each other as competition, and I don’t like how that feels. I’ve learned how to support others by watching all of you. There have been so many times over the last year when I’ve needed to emotionally support friends and family and even stand up for myself, and this tribe has given me so many ways to do this. By watching how support from strangers can go such a long way, I’ve been able to be there for people in my life so much better.  I’ve also learned that cheering for someone doesn’t mean I’m putting someone else down.  So thanks, everyone!  I’m a better friend and mom because of all of you. I live and love unapologetically because of you all. I love all of you for your support of me and especially of my dad when he took me to NYC and did 5 rides in 3 days with me. He still talks about it.  You’re all wonderful people, and I really think we need a JSS Tribe HRI. I’d be the first to sign up (and if it’s the weekend of November 9, that’d be great because I’ll already be there for my bday! Hint! Hint!). XOXO to all!
