“Dear Destiny, I am ready now.”

I have exciting news!

It’s been a long time since i’ve written a blog. After nearly 8 months of not competing, and two months completely off… I am back. But this time, I am doing things a little differently. This past year I admittedly sheltered myself. After two pretty significant accidents, I was quite honestly just scared of putting myself out there again. The “what if’s” would creep into my mind daily, crippling me and keeping me from moving forward. Though my body and mind did need time off, I feel that i’m ready to take myself on. No longer will I be my own worst enemy. It’s time to join my own team.

This year is all about stepping outside my comfort zone. It stings a little to say that out loud. Because comfortable is well…comfortable! But that hasn’t gotten me anywhere. So I decided to reach out to my bucket list coach. Why? Why not? I realized there is no better time than now. I had met this amazing triathlete and person at a race last year. We chatted for a while, and my wheels have been turning ever since. One of the main reasons I think she is amazing, is because of how hard she pushes her athletes. But what made me over the top excited about her was hearing about the time she made one of her athletes run a MARATHON on a TREADMILL after he DNF’d from an Ironman. Talk about pain cave. It was then I knew she was meant for me!

Mary Eggers has been an amazing coach for me for the past 2-3 years. I have nothing bad to say about her. She has taught me so much about the sport, and has been with me through all of my face plants! And for that I am so grateful. I just feel like it is time to mix things up, and to start fresh. So Mary, THANK YOU!

My new coach and I spoke for over an hour on the phone today. I am so incredibly excited to start. Our plan is to ride the heck out of my bike. Get more experience and get comfortable! I’ll be doing some bike overload weeks eventually upwards of 300 miles or 20 hours. I’m excited now…i’ll check in during one of those weeks when I can’t feel my insides 😉

So i’m obviously looking to drastically improve my bike (which sucks right now), and get to the point where i’m not shot by the time I get off so I can actually RACE the run. So some speed work is on my agenda in the next few months!

Soooooo who is she?

Hillary.Biscay1  Hillary Biscay!!!!!

For those of you who don’t know her…let me brag on her a little for you!

She was the Ultraman World Champion in 2013. If you are unfamiliar. It’s a double ironman. Yowza. This race has my interest! She has done over 60 Ironman races, and been top 5 in 30 of them. She also went to the 2000 Olympic Trials for the 200m Breast Stroke. But best of all…she’s an amazing person. One whom I can’t WAIT to get to know better, and someone i totally trust to lead me on this journey.

I am ready to be humbled. And I am ready to join my own team. A big thank you to Hillary for taking me on as her project!

Looking forward to reading everyone’s 2015 race schedules. Happy Training friends!!
