My friend Tristan Gale rocked the world Wednesday realizing her dream of a Gold Medal.

Congratulations, Tristan, I can't think of a finer person that deserves this honor.

You've worked hard, trained hard, and conquered yourself and all other obstacles (including the snow that you thought might hamper your progress.)

You're an inspiration to me and the rest of the world. It couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

PS. Thanks again for all the fun in Biology Lab! :) You're the best.
