The Courage is Already Inside

IMG_20150526_085703

Tomorrow will be my first triathlon of the season.  Ironically, as I was nervously preparing for my race, this commercial came on… Whatever tomorrow brings, I know I’m going into it prepared.  Months of hard work: endless hours in the pool, countless 5:00 AM wake-ups to get on the trainer, and running in temperatures that […]
