"We will all face adversity on the road to becoming a champion. Be Bold and toe the line with joy in your heart and a smile on your face. You get the opportunity to race" - Terra Castro
Today I drove down to Richmond for the Rev3 Rush draft legal race. I have been working with a Youth athlete in our area who is coached by the Endorphin High Performance Team. We meet during the week for workouts and focus on learning life skills because being a teenage triathlete is not the easiest thing to do. I remember those days vividly.
This was a great race for her to gain confidence and have fun. To see a junior beaming with a smile because they can see what over time they are capable of is pretty cool. When I was 15, I had mentors that dragged me along on the bike and that held me accountable to being the best I could be. Now it is my turn to share that passion and focus.
This was a great venue- the Richmond International speedway race track. Rev3 brought in a great 25m pool (though it may need some markers on the wall for flip turns etc) and the athletes went in heats. It made for a safe and spectator friendly, draft legal race. I hope this will inspire a series down the road because what a fun day!
Now it is a 3 x P kind of night- pjs, pizza, and planning for the Be Bold athletes.
Remember you will face adversity. Chose to focus on joy and smile- you will toe the line victorious no matter what.
