Amazing Awaits

“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!!
