So, that's my long winded way of saying....I'm keeping it real. Without further ado- the last few weeks:
I may have
So, after school let one week post IM Cairns, I dug into a few big training weeks, with San Diego International Triathlon wedged in the middle. San Diego Int'l went pretty well and I walked home with a nice paycheck, 2nd in the pro field, and overall a quite positive day.

Until this weekend at Muncie 70.3, when apparently my legs were not interested in going any more! All I can say is that I was very flat. (So was the course- which makes for some fast times if you are racing well) So, the day went significant sub average for me with a 10th place pro finish on that day. I had chats with two girls I respect post-race- April Gellatly and Kate Bevilaqua...both girls have been through the ebb and flow of triathlon racing and both gave me some words that encouraged me to not give up. The highs are high and the lows can be quite low. I guess if it was all glorious world travel and an influx of paychecks more people would do it ;).
