My workouts the week of the race felt rough, but I am pretty good at not letting a workout effect how I think a race will go. You never know what will happen on race day, right? That's always my motto. However, the swim was also ROUGH from the get go..not rough water but I didn't feel strong even though I was at the front of our AG wave and then it just felt long, like when in the heck is this going to be over long...where's the finishing arch? Oh man, over there?!!Just keep swimming...Turns out everyone felt the swim was long or very slow so as always once the swim is over, it's time to bike and forget the swim!

|Perfect OH summer day|
|FAVE ice cream ever!!|
"Failure reminds us what we are working for, why we are working for it. Overcoming obstacles makes us stronger – helps us realize that the path is littered with challenges. The path to great results must be hard, hence why it is such a rewarding, valuable, delicate path! It brings out our true emotions to why sport is important to us. Failure narrows our focus again on what our goals are."- Chris Hauth
