Thanks! I Needed That.

I've been battling with some depression lately, evident in my last post. Needless to say, it was quite the timely e-mail that I got the other day:

"Hi Rachel,

We just posted an article, “50 Informative & Inspiring Blogs for Triathletes” ( ). I thought I'd bring it to your attention in case you think your readers would find it interesting.

I am happy to let you know that your site has been included in this list.

Either way, thanks for your time!"

Thanks so much for the shout-out!

I would definitely agree with that statement! Your blog and your love for the sport shine through immensely in each of your posts-especially the race reports!
I enjoy reading them and have emailed them to many of my friends and co-triathletes!

SHERRY said...

Totally agree! Your blog taught me so much when I first started out. I even printed up your directions on how to change a tire! :-)

Way to go, Rachel!

Lesley said...

Yay Rachel! I agree -- your blog is both informative and inspiring! So much awesome info and it's been amazing to hear about your triathlon journey! :)

I just found your blog after a summer of beginning triathlons. It's been a goal of mine to compete in an Ironman since the first time I saw Kona on TV when I was 15. I am now 28, and 3 kids later have started my path with the sprint distance.

Going back to the beginning when you started has been so inspiring to me at the beginning of my path. I love to see how you've improved and I only hope I can do the same.

Moving up to Olympic distance next summer and plans for a 1/2 ironman in 2012.

Hope you feel better soon!

I am getting ready for my first half in three weeks and feeling a bit nervous BUT I have discovered that things will work out despite my anxiety and. I am quite confident that good things are coming your way too. Hang in. Best- Deirdre

Great blog - keep up the great work! Our paths crossed once upon a time when I was in San Diego training for work just over a year ago. I actually recognized you as you ran by me the opposite way. I circled back and ran a mile or so with ya.

It was great to meet you in person and I wish you the very best in your job hunting. Keep the faith...
