Dreams are only foolish to those who lack them.
If you had told me two years ago that I would be running half marathons and half Iron distance races I would ha laughed in your face. Well, last night I finished my first double digit run of the season. I'm happy because it means that things are finally starting to come together and not a second too soon. Have 1 more week before taper and I intend to take taper seriously for a change. I think that, as long as I don't cramp on the bike, I'll be ok for the run 🙂
Have to keep reminding myself that Triathlons are as much about mental toughness as it is about physical strength. Sometimes the race doesn't go to the fastest runner but to the one who doesn't quit. I have to constantly remind myself of that or I'll get disappointed when things don't go my way... I'm not doing triathlons to qualify for world championships... I'm doing it to push myself and to honor those who are fighting or have fought cancer in all its ugly ways, shapes or forms.
