May Update/Ironman TX
May was busy. Understatement. May was crazy.
May kicked off with the CNN FitNation Mid-Way Trip. The Mid-Way Trip is the opportunity for the CNN 6-pack to train, live, eat, and sleep like professional triathletes for a week. As Athletic Director of the FitNation program, my role is to plan workouts, coordinate with additional coaches, producers, and camera crew. I set the tone of each workout and create the environment for each athlete to achieve success. I enjoy the hands-on coaching. It’s awesome to be able to see the athlete’s push past what they thought was possible. It’s a week of growth and belief for the athletes. The goal is to have them leave Florida with a larger tool box of triathlon knowledge and the confidence that they will cross the finish line in Malibu.
I was home for a day and I left for Texas. I great week in Woodlands, TX and I am super grateful to my home-stay family, Tom & Jane Price. Thank you for having me!
My race was okay. I lost a couple minutes on the swim, rode into 4th, and got a flat at mile 100. I played amateur hour with said flat tire for 20-minutes. I was able to run back into 7th, but, in general, I was disappointed with the result. It happens, life goes on. I still came home with a payday and 1,000 KPR points.
Coach Matthew was “on deck” for the the race. It was awesome to have that support on course.
I owe many ‘Thank you’s’ for my current success, Dynamo Multisport & Coach Matthew Rose, Cannon Cyclery, Tri-PTC, Splish, but in the effort of keeping this brief and because I am racing again in less than 2-weeks. I’ll update with a full on ‘Thank you Post’ pre-IMCdA.
Finally, finished May and started June with shemoves Atlanta 5K, Suwanee. It was our most successful event to date both in the number of participants, but also in the flow of the day. It was a wonderful, inspiring morning.
Alright, June, what you got?!?!
