Once upon a time

I posted this note on my computer.

The date was 10/26/2013.

Two and a half years ago.

I didn't even know what "whatever it takes" meant back then.

I've learned so much since then. I feel like a completely different person, a completely different athlete.

I looked back over a few of my posts. You only see the words on the screen. With every reading, I remembered the emotion behind the posts.

All I could think was "what an incredible journey this has been".

For many years, I just wanted to get faster. I didn't realize this sport would make me a better person. When you find something that makes you a better person, that's something special.
