1. OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO THE FAMILY OF BARBARA WARREN

We’ve received some very sobering news of an accident that has affected a member of our Warrior’s Society family.

Angelika Drakes beloved twin sister, Barbara Warren, like Angelika a well-known record setting endurance athlete, passed away after suffering injuries in a bike crash during triathlon in Santa Barbara.

Our hearts go out to both Angelika and Preston; I can’t imagine the pain they are going through over this great loss and hope the love and support of their family and friends helps to ease the pain.
