That's how I feel my life has been going lately. Faster than the speed of light. I'm not going to lie, it's been a rocky start this year. I'm really enjoying my new team, but the transition to an entirely new subject area and grade level is much more challenging than I anticipated. Couple that with some behaviors that I haven't had to experience before and I'm not sure that this is going to be fabulous.

Luckily I have things like the Las Vegas Rock and Roll half to distract me for the next few weeks. Thank goodness.

Star Struck!

This is Chrissie Wellington. She is a 4 time World Ironman Champion who just so happened to be giving a talk at our local Tri shop. The crazy happy smile on her face was there the entire time. She was happy all night. She gave great advice, had an incredible story to tell and was by far the most inspirational person I have ever had the pleasure to meet.

I think I have a little crush on her now. I'll tell you something though, she has inspired me to pick out that sprint triathalon I have always wanted to do but have been too chicken to actually sign up for.

She also gave Melinda and I some great advice for our Half Training: "Run Hard, Run Happy."

Ok Chrissie, we will.
