Ok folks, it's Thursday and I haven't begun my race report! Life is on the crazy train right now and I've had my busiest week of work ever. That, combined with a few nights of wine with my girlfriends has left me exhausted... But, I'm so excited to sit down this weekend and knock it out because there was SO much I learned from this race and I have such a clear picture of where I need to go now...
My overall performance at Cali 70.3 was beyond what I believed I could do right now in a few areas, and was only possible because of the folks who believed in me more than I did in myself. I am so lucky that Coach Pete, James, Heather, Donna, & Katya have made me believe in myself... Sure, my bike ride was dismal, but it wasn't indicative of how I know I can ride right now- and that, right there, is an awesome feeling...For the first time, I actually believe I'm better than that. Usually, it's "well,l I rode to my capabilities"...Nope....Done with that and so looking forward to the road ahead.
I'll be back this weekend with a full report, but until then:
I swam a 28-smthg, rode 2:41, and ran from 14th place to 8th place with a 1:20 run
and a big smile
