I always appreciate your perspective coach! During my first half in January of this year I was in awe of so many that came out to cheer! At the end I even stopped and asked one of the police officers who was blocking a street to take a photo with me … I thanked her for keeping us safe, for smiling and encouraging us, and for everything she does …. Pure gratitude. But I will take that water next time because as you said it’s not charity … or a handout … or a sign of weakness…. Maybe I will look at it as a moment of appreciation because I truly and wholeheartedly appreciate everyone who was there!

YOU! yes YOU Coach are fabulous, wonderful, spectacular! Your message today and pretty much every time I stop to read is right on! Thank you! I'm a runner...a few times a year, when I'm not riding my road-bike, hiking, x-country skiing and today's message reminds me of my feelings each time I run (with you Coach) in my ears. I am learning, thanks to you, that I am a runner and a cyclist and a hiker and a skier and most importantly deserving as all my fellow athletes of kudos, encouragement and positivity! high-five! hugs! :)
