in its time....

~What Was~


~What Is~


~What Is to Come~

~There are times in my life I wish I could be in an 
altogether different place.

But it seems to me that you can't get to where you want to be...

 without experiencing the other place first.~



~All places can be beautiful in their time.~
~~~

(Thank you all so much for your encouraging words before my races this past weekend. I have to say both the Aquathlon and Triathlon were a learning experience....more of a mental battle than a physical one. 
I completed both....not with times I like, but I crossed the finish lines. 
And for that ~I'm happy:)

Congrats on your races! I hear ya about not being where you want to be. The other tough thing is that you do so many adventurous things (kayaking in a flash flood, triathlons, night races, it goes on and on....), the daily grind seems more of a grind sometimes.

Oh and if I ever do a full IM, I'll probably get the tat too :-).

I have thought of your races all week, I saw a friend yesterday and she takes her bike everywhere to be able to fit in her work and training.She liked that you were doing two in a week.
