Ahhh, so much to talk about, so little time! I just got back from Rev3 Quassy working on the staff for the weekend and I leave this weekend for Chicago where my brother in law Todd is getting married to my soon to be new sister in law Minna. We are so excited for them. Between all the travel I have been trying to fit in all the training that I can and I have tried to remain diligent in my coaching duties. I met one of the athletes I guide this weekend at Rev3 Quassy. Her name is Danielle and she is a complete doll! It was great to see her in action, and to get to chat the bit that I did with her. She lives on a tiny little island and I can't wait to go out and see her for a visit. Helping out other athletes is an absolute blast!
It's always really fun working the races and absolutely blitzing yourself so that no stone is left unturned for the athletes. One of the highlights of my weekend was getting to ride in the vehicle that Eric Wynn was in as he took pictures of the PRO women during the run. I pretty much got a front and center look at how the best in the sport run.
Wow, what a learning experience. It was also the first time I have seen Angela race this year, and it's neat to see all the progress she has made in the off season.
I took a ton of photos on my phone which was pretty funny since Eric Wynn had a HUGE lens, and I had...my iPhone... ha!
Julie - who took the win, and held off the chasing World Champ!
Rinny - hard charging to catch Julie, but hard to catch when she was out of sight.
Ang - finished 3rd and was clearly in the hunt. It was great to see her run a 1:22.
I liked to compare the ladies form and run style, all three very different, all three very fast. I also enjoyed seeing the look behind each of the ladies eyes. The look Rinny had while chasing, the look Julie had being chased, but knowing she was throwing down an excellent race, and the sheer grit and fight that Ang had behind her eyes. It was really really really motivating.
Congratulations to all of you who participated in Rev3 Quassy. I hope that we were able to make your racing dreams come true and I hope that you enjoyed the event and the atmosphere of the race. We all worked ourselves to the bone to provide the best product possible.
A special congratulations to my PIC who had a great race and took home 1st in her AG, we are proud of her!!
And now, I am back to training HARD, and loving it. The weather has turned to summer here in Colorado and we have already been treated to some 95 degree days. I'm eating them up!
