My sister and I are doing Iron Girl together on May 6th. This is pretty special to me because it’s the first triathlon for both of us. She’s totally going to smoke me, and I am cool with it.
I got an email this morning from her, and I wanted to blog what she wrote, because I think it’s so on point and awesome.
Lyndsey wrote “THANK YOU for taking me out to the course in Vegas. I think it’s made everything more real as I train. Went to spinning a couple of times last week, and when I turned it up to level 10, I envisioned the first hill, level 8 was Lyndsey Hill. It’s making things better.”
Lyndsey Hill is the hill that Lyndsey made her bitch when she conquered her downhill fears.
Now I need to take a page from Lyndsey’s book. I’m starting to get nervous, and doubt my readiness. Training has been tough the last couple weeks. My motivation is waning. I’m tired. Work is stressful. I thought this would be easier. Blah blah blah. I’ve got all the excuses lined up. I just need to get out there. Two and a half weeks to go.
