Quotes come and go, but sometimes they hit like a ton of bricks and stick like tree sap on my windshield.

A few days ago I was feeling a little down and lacked motivation.  Here I was, less than two weeks from Ironman Wisconsin and feeling sorry for myself, uncertain, and depressed.  Then, our coach posted this:

“Need some motivation? Put your hand over your heart…. Feel that??? Some day it will stop….Now, go be amazing and do everything you’ve ever dreamed of doing.” – Robbie Bruce

    Wow, I so needed that and glad to know I’m not alone. Thanks. I separated my shoulder with exactly three weeks to go until IMWI. Needless to say it really messed with me emotionally and physically. I woke up this morning really questioning if I could still do it. I rode my bike for the first time since my collision two weeks ago and while it hurt, it sure did feel awesome, but this post reignited that emotion I get when you think about completing an ironman and crossing the finish line. I almost got a tear in my eye. I’m going to read this quote from your coach everyday until the start of the race.

      So sorry to hear about your injury, but glad you are back in the saddle. I agree… with all the work and effort, it gets really emotional at times. The quote really resonates with me as well and I’m glad it helps. You’ll have to let me know your bib number so I can keep an eye out for you. Keep pushin. Mike
