Six years ago was my wedding day. (Technically 6 years and 2 days, but on our actual anniversary, we were in a tent a full day's hike away from a trailhead and any technology.)
During our trip, I was reminded of all the reasons I married this man. For all the ways that he is like me: our shared interests and opinions. For all the ways that he is unlike me: he balances me. He is there with me through every difficult situation. He often knows what my needs are before I do. I have changed in the time we have been together, and I wouldn't be the woman I have become without his unwavering support.
We've had good times and bad in the last six years and I wouldn't trade a moment of it for anything. My journey into the triathlon world wouldn't be possible without him. While I change many other parts of my life, there is one thing that remains constant and will continue to be so.
Six years. One day it will be sixty.
