I am STOKED.
I’m on a triathlon high.
I feel like I’m finally understanding all the athletic-related lessons I’ve been learning, especially those of the past three years.
I can now enter races without thinking about all the faster people who easily pass me.
I’m learning how to focus—and my focus is all on me and no one else.
I now understand that getting through a race and doing well in it takes serious work and dedication. I understand that if I want to improve, I need to work even harder.
I understand that I have so much more in me if I’m willing to adapt my schedule and give time and hard work to luring it out.
I feel like a champion! I feel like a champion even though I still finish races in an average or more likely below average ranking.
I feel like a champion because I’m learning how to overtake myself and how to overcome my weaknesses and anxieties.
Today I did the Dam ‘ard Triathlon in Halifax, UK, and I feel DAMNED GOOD! (more…)
