It's time to start Tri-ing again :)

Woo Hoo! I am So excited for Triathlon training this summer! First off I do have to say that I am pretty sad that our Assistant Coach from the following years is not going to be able to join us this year :(.......I remember at the beginning of 2010 when Krista posted on the Momstown message board, "Who wants to train for a Triathlon with Mommy's in Motion!?".....I really liked the name of the group because that what I was becoming...a mommy in motion. So my brain said,"YES!", my body said,"OH DEAR!, then fear piped up and said, "No frigg'n way can you do THAT!" and then this new little voice in my head said, "Screw you all! We ARE doing this!!!" OMG! OMG! OMG!!! Krista was there every night with such a beautiful smile to show us, a confidence that it will be ok and that I could do it (something I didn't have yet) and an excitement and love for the sport that couldn't help but rub off on me :) She is one of me main 'people' that have been an important part of my journey. So our first get together for Mommy's & Babe's in Motion was last night and this year I will be trying to fill Krista's shoes as Assistant Coach! AHHHH! SO excited and honoured, I was almost in tears when I told my husband that I was going to be 'Coach Gail' for the team. His reply was, "No you are going to be Coach Awesome!" LOL!!! as a congrats he made me a jacket with iron on letters saying, "Coach Awesome" on the back and "Awesome" down the arm! How wicked is THAT!!!
So last night was SO fun! We had more newbies come out last night and that always makes me excited! I am excited for them on the journey they are about to embark on and the growth, learning and empowerment that comes with it. although they all look like I did on my first night...like a dear caught in headlights! LOL!....I feel their fear, their unknowing, their questioning themselves and the uncertainty...I feel it because I know it, that's what I had too. But now after going through it I now KNOW how ok and AWESOME it will be and I find myself telling these ladies, "TRUST me! It WILL be ok!...we will take this one week at a time together and it's going to be awesome!"
