So Freaking Excited!!!

by | |
I have been sworn to secrecy for the last couple of days, but today it's official - I made the Evotri team! I am so excited and wanted to tell EVERYBODY, and now I can. I feel so honored to be picked from such a talented group of applicants. I know they had a tough decision to make.

Of course I am going out of my mind thinking of all of the amazing gear that this appointment will mean. I'm curious to see what having better equipment and a coach will do for my training and race times. I am looking forward to learning so much more about myself and the sport.

I may be equally excited, though, to have a bigger platform to share one of my passions - getting more people into the sport. One of my objectives as part of the team will be to cater to people thinking of taking up multisport and those who are very new to the community. I'd like to show people how to get more friends and family involved in addition to providing a resource for newcomers.

When I ran my first marathon in 2000, I knew one other person who had run one. When I participated in my first tri in 2004, I personally didn't know anybody who had ever done one. I have made so many mistakes over the years, and I hope that other people will be able to learn from them - just as I hope to continue learning through my new teammates.

I'm another total lurker. I didn't know anyone else that had done triathlons when I first started which is why I looked to blogs for inspiration and knowledge. You were one of the first tri blogs that I came across 2.5 years ago that sparked a fire in me. Congrats to you! You inspired me to start and gave me the knowledge to start confidently so I think this is perfect for you!
