First things first… this poster. Yes, it basically sums up life right now. Don’t you think? Let’s all take that pride and run with it. Ready, set, go!
Okay phew, got that out of my system.
Well, 48 hrs have past since our little MULTIPLE CHOICE. I haven’t talked much with the hubs, but I know he’s got a still on his mind. In fact, I actually caught him writing a DRAFT blog post today. WOW, that means something. Thoughts on paper are a good sign. But all I can do at this very moment is be an encouragement, no matter what he decides to do with the rest of the season.
Speaking of encouragement, this past weekend was full of Sherpa’s encouraging their friends, spouses, family members, etc. I just loved it! I got to play “momma” sherpa to a lot of our friends and fellow athletes, and that makes me happy. I thought I’d give you a little sneak peak into my side of things on race day. The sherpa side.
Here’s a vlog that sums it up and pictures to follow.
One of my favorite parts about “sherpa-ing” is catching those candid moments. The focus, the drive, the determination, the passion. You can see it in their eyes. It’s priceless.
The change up— > duathlon pro start…
Solid bike and transition….
Finishing the run… toughing it out before having to let the knee rest.
The long 9 hr drive home….
Races don’t define the athlete, the athlete defines himself/herself with hard work, dedication, and passion. Sure, placing well is a bonus, especially when it’s your livelihood. But what you see “behind the scenes” of race day is far more impressive. Well, to me at least! I maybe a wee bit bias.
No questions today friends, just pictures. Thanks for letting me share!
