It's all About Perspective...

I rarely blog 2 days in a row. I honestly don't think I have that much to say to capture your attention that often. But this... this just needs to be shared.

Last night in Ironwilled: Women who TRI (yes, there it is another plug, stick with me) I posted this picture....
It was posted with a message to keep this in mind when you start seeing and hearing about other's training. We are each on our own path. Stay true to your plan, your race, your goals!

I had to learn this the hard way and Jason (#mycoachisadork) had to beat it in to me. My race, my training, my plan. Don't try to keep up with others. Don't worry about others. Worry about you. I used to say I was putting my blinders on to focus on me and not compare myself to others. It's soooooo hard! DUH...just like life!

We got some snow in Atlanta this morning. My sister posted this awesome snowman she and her son built once school was canceled.
What a cool snow man! Wow, how much snow did you get?
And then she posted another picture....

Oh....not that much, huh?
And then another....


It's all about perspective.
Especially as triathlon season kicks up (and life continues) keep this in mind. Your friend who just spent 3 hours on his trainer may be going to Puerto Rico for a 70.3 in 2 weeks. The woman in your group who just ran 20 miles this weekend and is doing the same race as you in 6 months might have a marathon coming up.
You do you and remember....


  1. Love this. Because I am oddly jealous when people post about their 3 hour trainer rides (even though I really can't wait to get off after 1) because I feel like they are fitter, stronger, and faster than me and I need to get caught up. But with some sprints and olys on my schedule I have absolutely no need for a 3 hour trainer ride. Thanks for the perspective.

    1. It's so true! It isn't about anyone else's journey but your own. Not only that...some only share the amazing stuff. Focus on you. Do you. Your race...your plan...your pace!
