Tomorrow morning approximately 1,900 athletes will converge on the Boulder Reservoir for the Boulder 70.3 triathlon (1.2 mile swim~56 mile bike~13.1 mile run). It is a popular race on the half Ironman circuit with the Rocky Mountains as a scenic back-drop.
With a disappointing outcome in my previous four races I am excited to get back in the mix with a hometown tilt. My training block leading up to this event has been solid as I have been working through a nagging foot injury. I have simply strived to persevere with eyes of faith.
Life can get messy: relationships, work, training, finances, health concerns, etc. It is through these challenging moments we can all benefit from running the good race. We might fall, we might get hurt, we might experience a taste of disappointment, but we will never be given more than we can handle. Phil 4:13 - "In Him who is my source of strength, I have strength for anything." Christ came not to take away our suffering, but fill it with His presence.
When the gun goes at 6:30am, it's game on. May we all have the courage to be our best in running the greatest race of all...LIFE!
Keep it smooth,
