YOU DID IT

In life we tend to settle.  Get comfortable.  Complacent.  We get numb.  There is so much more out there and racing allows me this opportunity to connect deeply with myself, explore the world, and remind myself to never ever settle in my life.

DREAMS DON’T EXPIRE. THEY EVOLVE.

I feel beyond proud of what we have created for the past 5 years in Baltimore.  I will always be the founder of REV Cycle Studio. I am the girl that had the dream, to open Baltimore’s first cycle studio.  This was my dream for so many years, and I fucking did it!  I created a legacy in our city and it is now time to expand, to grow, and step once again into the unknown.

I almost never smile during a race, especially coming out of the swim. But in Puerto Rico I was all smiles.  I even had a Rocky Balboa moment after my swim as I punched the air with one fist. Yeah, I had a great swim; I was 6th in my age group out of the water!  Fuck, I had a great race PERIOD!  Part of my success in Puerto Rico was choosing THE RIGHT RACE for my goal. 

My main goal was to qualify for Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France.  So I searched for the most perfect race that would set me up for success in order to achieve my personal goal. Here are my 10 tips for choosing the right race for you.

OK TO WANT WHAT YOU WANT

Exactly two years ago, October 30, crossing the finish line of Ironman 140.6 was the first time in my life that I felt this absolute bliss of freedom.  Magic.  Like if I grew my very own set of wings.  Wings!  I was fucking high for days post race.  I was fucking high during the 6-month training to get body to the start line.   I was fucking high during the race.

I have been searching ever since for other life experiences that give me this sense of magic.  I have been craving for more.  Wanting for more.   Dreaming for more.  It is not that I am dissatisfied with my present. 

It is knowing what you love and wanting more of that.

LEASHING YOUR DEMONS

I stood among the top triathletes in the world and everybody looked incredibly fit, strong, and ready.  I judged myself and felt not good enough, an imposter among the top Ironman athletes of the world.

An imposter?  But how when I qualified for this race and my Ironman ranking as All World Athlete is silver in my age group.

We are women of all walks of life embodying the sport with our hearts and our souls, while testing the limits of our bodies.  We have overcome challenges and adversities, while discovering the depths of our own strength.  For many of us, this sport called triathlon has given us confidence, power, freedom, and spirit.  For me, what I learn from my training and races overflows into my business and relationships.  It has made me stronger both physically and mentally.
