A True Champion
Congrats to all the true champions out there this summer.
Sure many professional athletes will compete and win on the Triathlon,
Ironman and open water swim circuits this season and they are most
certainly the elite. But what about the first time Ironman competitor who
struggled to swim 500m in the pool 12 months ago? They probably need to
juggle training around a full time job, maybe a partner and their children, as
well as the requirement to fund their own equipment, travel and training.
Ironman and Triathlon training takes enormous commitment and dedication
to ensure balance with family and work to ensure success in such a demanding
sport. There are many of you out there every race season. Each of you has my
utmost admiration and support. Keep working hard toward your dream; to me
you are certainly true champions!
