|Acworth Women's Sprint 2013. When I discovered, I don't like sprints.|
Why am I moving on?
I’m stubborn. I didn’t realize how stubborn I was until I had to start riding long distances. The first time I rode 56 miles was horrible, but I did it. There was a 60 mile ride I did on a saddle I knew was wrong for me but I had no other day to get the ride done. The MAAC Century took me 8 hours to complete, but I did, even after my riding partner dropped around mile 90 and got a ride back with SAG support. I’m a hell of a lot stronger mentally than I have given myself credit for in the past.
I like to smile. Really. I truly enjoy this sport and most of the people it has brought into my life. I do feel like I miss out on some things because of training, but I don’t really regret it. I like who I have become since beginning to run and then becoming a triathlete.
I am stronger than I think (right Jason?)
My life is crazy busy (yes yes, so is everyone else’s.) Rigid 9-5 job. Second full time job (or so it seems) mid-February through the end of April. This means all training has to be done before work Monday through Friday and weekends are touch and go regarding availability until lacrosse season is over. Long rides don’t happen till the end of April.
