IM Lake Placid 2009
Here we go again, another 3:30 am breakfast and another IM morning. When I look back on the past 9 months (since my last IM in Kona), first off, I can’t beleive it’s actually been that long. Mostly though, I remember a relentless grind of hard training and others around me pushing themselves to their limits. I remember, early mornings to train and late nights coaching. I’ve seen some of our athletes change their lives with triathlon over the same period by losing huge amounts of weight or by meeting new friends.
As mechanical as I am about my approach to this sport, I can’t help but see the qualitative side at times…this is one of those. As I face race day today, it’s more about the athletes QT2 has on the course than it is anything for me. Given the hard work everyone has put in and the fitness I know everyone has, there’s nothing more I’d like to see than have the day executed well and a big pay off for everyone.
It’s going to be a great day!
