A Gift Not Taken Lightly...


If you train long enough, you'll have the privilege to enjoy a "perfect workout" They don't come often and there is nothing "predictable" or "timely" about them but when the perfect run (or ride or swim or race) happens, it is transformative.

There wasn't anything "special" about today's workout. 50 minutes of Zone 2 Running, just another workout in the B2B IronMan Taper. But today all the pieces fell into place: 50F and clear blue skies with just enough of a breeze to ripple the waters of the Potomac River and make it seem like the sun was dancing on the surface of the Jefferson Memorial/Tidal Basin...

The pace was effortless... no aches, no pains, no weary muscles, no overwhelming thoughts, problems or emotions to deal with.

Just me...out for an easy run.

4.28 miles to remind me that all this training has made a difference....That I am STRONG, BEAUTIFUL, POWERFUL and ALIVE. No worries about what "size" I wear or what "pace" I run or what "distance" I cover...

Just a precious gift, from my Body to my Soul...

Life is Good! LiveSTRONG!
