    Some people have “it”, some people don’t.

    You have a lot of “it”.

    I can’t wait to see what 2011 will bring.

    All the best,

    Just you? After all the training, dedication to diet, recovery, sacrifice and courage to take on 3 IMs in a year? I know what you’re saying, but don’t sell yourself short on the work that it takes to become “you”.

    The journey may not make us someone different; but not many people have the guts to find out who they are.

    Excellent job on IM Arizona. 2011 will be a fun year as we SBR together 3000 miles apart.

    Just came back from Cozumel, and you summed up the post-IM feelings perfectly. Here’s to a great 2011!

    One last thing…if I REALLY wanted to deceive or trick someone I would apply so much sunscreen to my calf that come the run….there would be no number period…not the “wrong” number?!? Or MAYBE…I’d wear compression socks which would cover my calf…hey…like YOU! Just a bit hypocritical Sonja.
