You can see the happiness in Laurie Allen’s eyes in these photos from Jack’s Generic Triathlon last weekend.

Allen completed nine Ironman triathlons and nine half Ironman triathlons before she was paralyzed in a fall in February 2015. Sunday’s race marked her first triathlon since that accident, and her family and friends gathered to cheer her on and congratulate her at the finish.

Great job, Laurie. And thanks for sharing your photos, Carrie Barrett.
