“Amazing Awaits”is the slogan this year for the USA Olympics. I know because I was just there for USA Cycling. “Amazing” that word sure holds a ton of weight. Yes, these athletes are truly amazing at what they do, and so are the coaches and performance staff that work together to create perfection. I tried to get to the trials for the marathon, just to be a small part of something so great. I didn’t make it.. But, I have never lost sight of the dream, it has just changed as I have gotten older.
Yes, I made it to the Olympic Training Center as a USA Cycling Coach. It’s a course, but I was there, I felt the energy, the excitement. Maybe not in the capacity as actually being an athlete who qualifies but of one who had a dream to.
I am an athlete, I may not have made the Olympic Trials but I have never stopped training or racing… I love this sport that I do.. Running.. Cycling..Swimming. I will continue to cross finish lines hopefully stronger each time.
Now, I am excited to be able to take my knowledge of racing and training for the last 17 years and encourage other to start, or get stronger. Being a USA Triathlon, Track and Field, and USA Cycling Coach carry with them a responsibility to teach others that “AMAZING AWAITS”!! Who knows maybe one day one of my athletes will be standing on that podium!! Never Stop Dreaming!!Read More...
2010 … the teen years for the 2000’s. Are you gonna be a rebellious teenager, or are you gonna get motivated and get it together. The choice is yours, the time is now. We are well into the month and as we get further into the year, stay focused.
What you told yourself you wanted to do, what you wanna be, who you wanna become. HARDER, BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER!! Stay Commited, don’t compromise. And please don’t make excuses. We all have busy lives, yes some more than others. But it’s time to prioritize, the difference you make in your self will be positive when it involves your health which means it benefits everyone who is in your life. Not only will your positive attitude affect others, you might get someone else motivated. It happens like that. Be an inspiration.
I know when I look back on these years, I wanna say “I nailed it” and point to everyone I inspired and those that inspired me. We never do it alone. Help me help you!!
My teens weren’t great, yes I was a rebellious teenager. But 2010 I’m looking you in the face and I feel GOOD, I feel STRONG, I may fall down but I will stand tall with my fist pumping in the air and keep moving forward.. ARE YOU WITH ME?? SAY YES!!!!!Read More...
