Holy cow. This year has been epic. Like really epic.

I trained my ass off to become an Ironman.
I found a badass coach.
I was on the podium overall and age group at almost every single race.
I have amazing friends.
I have the best support.
I love my job and my coworkers.
I got hit by a car while cycling.
<<i am alive>>
<<i missed races>>
<<i am not an ironman… yet>>
<<i am not healed… yet>>
I have so much to be grateful and thankful for yet I find myself struggling. This whole getting hit by a car really effed with me. Not only can I not train but I am in constant pain. I can’t get excited about my racing season next year because I have no idea when I will be okay again. I feel like I am in a bit of a limbo. Wanting so bad to jump back on my bike, in the pool and pound some pavement… but I know recovery is first. I have to feel 100% so I don’t just keep setting myself back.
I am ready to start blogging again! Might be because I have too much time once again. I have always come back to my blog when I struggle. It’s my journey and I love that I am continuing to document it along the way.
My goals are there and I will reach them. Knock me down I will stand back up. Looking forward to being a triathlete in training again.
