"To the love of my life, thank you for letting me be part of this amazing journey of yours! I am so proud of you for all the blood, sweat and tears you have put into these past four years. I know there have been a lot of frustrating times during the process with a lot of mistakes along the way, but the race we always planned on you swimming came together at the perfect time and ended in one hell of a moment I will never forget and will always cherish. Thank you for taking a risk on me four years ago and trusting before I trusted myself. You truly are my hero and my inspiration!"
