Laura tweeted earlier today that she was getting all anxious before her presentation for her Ph.D defense. I responded back telling her she's run 100 miles, she's completed an Ironman--she's got this, and she did.
It was really fun to watch her and learn another side of who she is.
This photo shows Laura with her Ph.D. Advisor relaxing and enjoying a well deserved cold one.
Laura will be leaving the islands soon and is off to the East coast on a post doctorate research grant.
We wish her much success professionally. I have a feeling we'll see her at some point in the future as she asked on my 5th loop if I would pace her during her next HURT 100.
Best of luck Dr. Kloepper!
