How is it possible that 2018 is in the rearview mirror?! December was a fun month full of great things!! Here is a small snapshot of what I was up to last month!!
Swim: 22,600 yards (12.84 miles)
Bike: 221 miles
Run: 56.5 miles
Monthly Totals: 39 hours & 14 minutes
The Coeur Sports EarSplitz Podcast featured Lesley Paterson and Simon Marshall this month as they talk about Mindset!! This was SO insightful on how we can let our mind drive us or derail us…it is our choice!! “We chat with Lesley Paterson and Simon Marshall about mindset in depth. How do we find ways to defeat ourselves? How can we achieve what we didn’t think was possible? Learn how you can use acting techniques to make things work even when they shouldn’t. BTW, did we mention Lesley is this year’s Xterra World Champion? And Simon is a PhD in psychology?”
KonaKamps featured Mindy Nicolet who won the W40-44 age group at Ironman Louisville. It was fun to hear her perspective as I also raced this event and am in the same age group. I was glad to know that the conditions were challenging even for the winners.
KonaKamps also featured Sanna Duvebrant who won the W50-54 age group at Ironman Louisville. Since she is from Sweden and used to colder weather, it was good to get her perspective on the race day conditions and know that they really were as bad as I thought!!
Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming one of the World’s Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself by Rich Roll is a must read!! “On the night before he was to turn forty, Rich Roll experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he could see where his current sedentary life was taking him—and he woke up.” Following Rich’s journey was inspiring, uplifting, and fun!! Not only what he has accomplished to live life to the fullest, but the message he sends.
“Let go of the end game. Instead, fall in love with the process. Show up for life with enthusiasm and commitment. Connect with spirit. Wrestle with your soul and relish every hardship. Along the way, be patient. Go gently. And give freely of yourself to others. Because it’s the journey that truly gives your path meaning. And there truly is no destination.”
Time with family, friends, and Coeur Sports sisters!! So much love to fill my hear this time of year!!
2019!! Each year is a new chapter in my journey of life and I’m super excited to see what 2019 has in store for me!! Who else is excited + ready for 2019?!
