It’s Not a Competition

It’s Not a Competition

I know that sounds strange coming from me .

After all, I help people compete is the sport of triathlon, swimming, biking, and running.

But, it’s not about being the best.

I grew up thinking that I had to always excel at everything. And when that inevitably proved impossible, it made me feel like a failure – also another falsehood.

It took a long time to realize that sometimes it’s ok to be … well, ordinary. Average. Somewhere in the middle.

And that helped me see my skills, body and fitness goals in a new light. It wasn’t necessary to have the best figure, or be the fastest.

What really mattered? That I was taking action every day to get where I wanted to be and I was having FUN along the way.

Sometimes I did better than I did at other times. Sometimes I even did better than other people. And sometimes, I was just meh.

And that’s OK. That’s life.

What’s important is showing up, and improving yourself

We don’t thrive by always being The Best.

We thrive by making our best effort on a consistent basis – and enjoying the journey!
