Mental health is as important as physical health when it comes to endurance training, motivation and success (your definition) in sport. This includes navigating the world of injuries as often times that can have a manifestation of other issues in your life. Carrie Cheadle has helped me to navigate my latest injury and has provided a wealth of knowledge. I am truly grateful for her time. Get your attitude adjusted to soar higher than you dare! #liveyourbestlife #soarhigherthanyoudare #ittakesavillage #riseup https://mailchi.mp/carriecheadle/attitude-adjustment-3-simple-questions-for-a-better-attitude-3423301?e=9f5a164adc

What amazing stories of the human spirit and human achievement and this year didn't disappoint. Mr. Pete, 72 years youngs, having done over 30 marathons and Mr. Will, completely his first marathon and getting a Tarheel Win in the same night. Two remarkably different stories, but two inspirational and pretty awesome athletes. Thank you Mr. Pete and Mr. Will for allowing me to be a part (although super small) of your endurance journey. #soarhigherthanyoudare #thankyouwbmarathon #believeyouwillandyoudo; #secondchances #livinglife

Day One was Tool Shed and Elements of Style They started us out right, so our legs could still run a mile Day Two was just awesome with Team Scream and Half is Easy The weather was just perfect and only a touch breezy Day 3 we ventured into A Very Dark Place Everyone at that point was just hoping to find their own space Day 4 we added strength and the Greatest Workout of All Time I had to include the laser eyed goats in this short rhyme We needed some yoga and Omnium raced us on the track After Day 5 we were happy for our Coach to give us a pat on the back Day 6 we were told YOU can do it, You can Into Thin Air we went surrounded by our biggest fan Day 7 was The Blender in a mini version that was rough Fortunately for us our legs could handle it because we are so tough Day 8 tightened the knot with 14 Vise Grips so strong But we knew we were there and just couldn’t go wrong We survived, we conquered and we became true Sufferlandrian beasts We did so much work, we are ready for some feasts There is NO TRY, only DO, in stylish ways Defender brought us home after 9 super awesome days So remember my friends, my athletes, my Stars! Riding your bicycle is better than driving your cars We are strong, we are fit, and our cycling fitness has been put to the test Know in your heart you put yourself a step above the rest! #coachsamisrockstars #tour2019 #9daysofpurejoy #cyclingfitness #triathlontraining #mentaltoughness
