training inspired

next week should be good - the saturday training we actually put all our training together into series of actual triathlon events, over and over....FUN! more importantly, afterwards, we get to meet and picnic with our honored hero Fiona who i mentioned in an earlier post when i first started training. i still cannot instill the power this little girl has at 6 years of age; the strength she was forced to develop at such a young age is awe inspiring, and she inspires me daily. she and the gentleman i met last weekend at my training. this gentleman was probably in his 40's and has been in remission for 1 year. he spoke to us and was still choked up and raw from what he suffered, and conquered. i have NEVER met another person so psyched to be alive. he rode his bike with so much enthusiasm, he literally fisted and pumped his hands in the air as he rode. so grateful, so thankful, and had his wife riding with him the entire way. that is it. that is what this is all about.

GO TEAM - and swim, ride, and run with the power these patients teach us daily.
