Happy New Year! I hope this post finds you healthy and excited for things to come. Please contact me if you’re interested in triathlon or running coaching this year. I currently have the bandwidth for a few more folks. In 2012, we enjoyed a ton of success, on and off the race-course. We also continue to learn a lot about metabolic efficiency training, and how to best integrate it into an athlete’s lifestyle to encourage optimum athletic performance. The body and mind only learn what we teach it!
Point Positive athletes continue to push the limits, in distance as well as establishing personal bests across the triathlon and ultra-running spectrum. I know just in two years, I’ve taken almost two full hours off my North Face Endurance Challenge 50mi run time, while enjoying personal bests at many events, including Wildflower, Vineman 70.3, and Full Vineman triathlons. In 2013, I’m going back to my favorite event of all time: the Tahoe Rim Trail 100mi run
. I have faith I can take an hour or more off my best time there, while on a fun and challenging adventure in self-discovery.
We’re never defined by our results but how we live our lives. Sport brings much peace, joy, and happiness, which naturally spills over into all our other life roles. I look forward to maintaining–and creating a few more–cool connections with more awesome humans in the coming year.
Take it from me: being consistent and flexible with an effective training plan goes a long, long way toward achieving what you know is inside of you. So muster the will to take that flying leap of faith, and simply believe in your ability to improve. The greatest contest is always with ourselves.
It’s all in front of us; let’s go chase it down >>>
