How do you sum up a season?

With my last scheduled race of the season behind me and a big race report to write in front of me, I am struggling to find words for this triathlon season.

Rev3 Cedar Point was a success and a PR to boot (12:24:49!!) , but it also reminded me of how much I have to learn about myself as an athlete.

A full race report will follow by segment in the week ahead and I promise it will not be all roses and sunshine. I will do my best to chronicle the highs and lows of my day -- how I felt in the moment and I how I feel now -- and most importantly, what I will do the same and what I will change for my next Ironman. I really enjoy re-reading race reports as I prepare for future races and I hope that someone reading learns something that can help them in their next race as well.

For now, I will leave you with this quote I saw today that really spoke to me:

"How can you say that the sky is the limit if there are footprints on the moon?"

Sweet time. Great job
I would love that time at IMFL this year. The goal is to beat Arnie's PR of 12 29.

I hope you had fun with the kids at Cedar Pt.

Congrats on your finish!!! You really rocked it. Did you and your family get to enjoy the park after the race? Steve in a Speedo posted something about the park only being open to athletes after the race. I bet your kids would have loved that!

Anne—great race—and great meeting a fellow blog buddy at Rev3 Cedar Point. Glad you kept my legs moving for a little bit.

Hope we can cross paths again at another race. Enjoyed meeting your other half as well.

Best Wishes!
