One more race on the 2008 calendar for me and I'm calling it a season. It's been an interesting one sprinkled with a bit of disappointment and frustration,but I always try and pull myself back from those moments and remind myself how very fortunate I am to be able to participate in the sport of triathlon and have fun doing what I enjoy. The outcome might not always be what you strive for but it makes you more seasoned and hopefully better prepared for the next challenge. I'm looking forward to stepping back and reassessing my season's performances to try and improve on my mistakes and figure out what worked and didn't.
I've decided to dedicate this last race to Margaret and Dawn at Splish is whipping me up this suit for next Sunday September 7th for Pumpkin Man 1/2 ironman in South Berwick, Maine. I want to thank Mel for helping me and inspiring me with her own designs for this suit.
Last weekend was Cranberry Country Triathlon in Lakeville MA. It's an international distance race and this year, chosen as the 2008 USAT Northeast Region's Club Championship. We as Team Psycho got first in our division and here's a picture of me being very modest upon receiving our certificate.
Team Psycho also supplied the cold hard cash for the top 3 male and female over all.
We do this at select races to promote our Elite Team Development Program. I got the job of handing out the checks on Sunday.Here I am laying out the love to the top male finisher that just happens to be on our team. Hugs Hugs Kiss Kiss. Not a bad job, eh?
Here I am containing myself in a more *professional* manner and not slobbering all over the 2nd place overall finisher who I didn't know
Hard to believe Labor Day weekend is here. You know what that means...
summer.. boo hooo is coming to an end.
To all my blog readers: If you are racing this weekend,
GET IT DONE! TIME IS MONEY! IF YOUR NOT SUFFERING,YOUR NOT GOING HARD ENOUGH!
....oh and good luck of course.
