On June 22, 2008, Jeanie, Erin, Robin, Malinda and I were racing Coeur d’Alene. We exchanged some pretty sweet anniversary emails today. I love those girls. I’m thankful for them and the experience we shared.
I celebrated the anniversary today with a tough spin class followed by a treadmill run. I pushed hard on both and felt strong. It was the perfect start to my day – the perfect re-commitment to my training and start of my training week. This time around, I don’t have my Iron buddies or my running partners. I don’t have my personal trainer or my pre-made program from my tri-group. This time around, the race is almost entirely about me and the course. I need success this time around. Last time I think I wanted it. This time, I need it.
