Why Tri?

Hey there RYPEness!

I am sooooo super excited!! Why you ask? Charlotte is getting their very own 70.3 triathlon! YAY!!

OK, I see some blank faces.

A 70.3 triathlon (or a Half Ironman distance) is a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and a 13.1 mile run….and I LOVE this distance! Basically because I am not fast, at all. I am better at being steady and consistent, as opposed to exploding out of the starting blocks. Those distances allow me to find my grove and stay in it for a while before moving on to the next event.

And now Charlotte is getting it’s very own! When thinking about the bike portion, my heart just flutters! Fifty-six miles through the rural areas of beautiful North Carolina? Man oh man…I am soooo stoked. Rolling hills and beautiful country….it don’t get no better than that!

Aren’t you getting excited too? Actually, I think you should join me! Because one of my biggest dreams…..the foundation of why RYPE was founded….is to be in one of these long distance triathlons and see a bunch of brown faces like mine racing too! I shed tears at the mere thought of it and know that one day, that dream will come true. AND!!…it would be nice if that dream was realized on September 28th at the inaugural Charlotte Half!

Think about it y’all!! Training plan information soon come!

You can’t get it if you don’t go for it!

Hey there RYPEness!

Everyone ready for an awesomely productive week?!! Did you know that how you start your week just very well might dictate the tone for your entire week? So, let’s all get off on the good foot, get those dream blueprints working, and those goal task lists checked off!!

All of us are striving to achieve something. This week it could be something as simple as finding the time to go to the gym, or something as major as launching your own business. Regardless of the end goal, the mentality should always be the same…..you have to go for what you want. Nike penned it best…”Just do it”. Three words so simple, yet incredibly profound. Realizing Your Potential Everyday means not only physically staying healthy, but mentally understanding that the power to achieve is contained right inside of YOU!

So as you progress through your days…and the obstacles start getting hurled at you, just remember that whatever it is you are striving for…you can’t achieve it if you don’t go for it. Your success is completely within YOUR power!! So give a beat-down to doubt, put a choke hold on fear, kick procrastination right square in the ass and DO THE DANG THANG! Your dreams are yours for the taking!

Have a RYPE week!
