I stole some quotes below from Sonya Wieck's blog after reading her Ironman World Championship race thoughts . Some are quotes from her, some from her coach, and some from a few others. I'm sure the following quotes could apply to any Ironman distance race and they all struck a cord with me, so I thought I would share a few as Ironman Florida is this weekend. Enjoy!
"After all, the Ironman will ask you questions out there in the middle of the Queen K, and you better have the answers to them."
"The main thing to remember is that it’s a long day at Kona, and that the swim has to be fairly enjoyable and relaxing. The bike not so much. The run not at all."
"Push is supposed to come to shove."
"If being uncomfortable is inevitable and the only way out is forward…through the misery…then we must embrace it."
* The last quote wasn't on her blog, but I thought it was appropriate and it's one of my favorites. "When going through hell...keep going."
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE RACING IRONMAN FLORIDA THIS WEEKEND!
I also had to share a pic of my 2 princess's from Halloween.
