Getting Pumped Up- Use Your Teammates!

So having watched the Mooloolaba races (watching the twitter update my screen with splits every 10 seconds) I got a rush that ran throughout my body. I know the race didn’t go as perfectly planned as Kirsten had hoped but she clearly gave it her all and I was extremely jealous that she was out killin it while i was sitting on the couch... at home...looking at my computer screen every 10 seconds. It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was racing but in fact, it was 6 months ago! That’s half a year! That’s too long! I cannot wait to get on the start line, run into the ocean and just go; just do the best I can.

Now to the “use your teammates!” part of my post title. Today I watched the group do a 5km TT. It was Sunday, early, rainy, cold and the sun was nonexistent. Everybody came and was in high spirits. Cheering them on and being at the end was so motivating. Everyone crossed out of breath and red in the face which also got me pumped up to race and to just simply “do work”. The morning finished with great group brekky at Matticks.

What I’m getting at is:
all the hard work and effort that my teammates and I are doing creates an atmosphere of excitement. Hopefully I’m not the only one who is “using” the group to set up for race season.
-So thank you Kirsten and all you 5km TT-ers
