Looking back on the Season

I've had time to sit down and really analyze my season. It has been a great first season being coached and I am so excited for the 2012 season.

I really want to thank my Coach, Mary Eggers for all she has done to get me healthy and sane to toe that finish line back on October 29th. It was a long haul with many ups and downs but we made it through together. I am sad to say I will not be coached by Mary this year as she is onto bigger and better coaching with QT2 Systems. One of the most well known coaching businesses in the world. She is going to do great. Its her personality and commitment to the athletes that will make her a great choice for athletes.

I am, however, Staying with Train-This (or T2 multisport coaching) under the direct guidance of the great Kristen Roe! I cannot wait to start the season with her guiding me! She is a fantastic person both in and out of Triathlon. Im so glad she agreed to coach me. I am also looking forward to computrainer time at Bike Loft East which is the main store sponsor for our team!

Looking back on the season, I had times where I wanted to give up. Throw in the Towel, Get it done and over with already. But, I made a goal and that goal was not to be broken. I had times where I wanted to party with my friends instead of go to bed at 8am to wake up and do a 4-6 hour bike ride. But, I realized my goal and what was important to me at that time.

I know what my strengths and weaknesses are and I have listed them and put them away to revisit when the 2012 season is underway. I know I want to build a strong base to carry me through the next season, lose a few more pounds, build strength in all disciplines and execute that run!!!

I have been looking at all the races I did this year and I have had more PRs this year than any other year. Eight to be exact EIGHT!!!! Can I get a Woot woot?!!!

I owe alot of this to consistency and training right with the help of my coach.

Once again...Thank you Mary!!!


  1. Woot Woot!!

    Definitely pack that list of weaknesses away for safe keeping. Pull it back out when you start training for 2012. I might just do that myself now that I think about it. haha

    Eight PR's? That's awesome! Here's to another 8 in 2012!!

  2. So important to list out all the lessons learned from a season - and so helpful when you can pull out that list before you get going again in 2012. Based on this post, I'm damn sure you're doing to be taking names in 2012!!

  3. WOOT WOOT! You had a great year! Consistency is key and that is my goal for 2012! Thanks for showing me the way!

  4. I have to say.... I highly enjoyed our experiences together. As a coach I get the best seat.... I get to stand here and watch you grow as an athlete and person and I am extremely proud of not only our journey, but the one you are about to take!

  5. I love that you have identified strengths and weaknesses and are ready for another kick butt season! :)

  6. Great reflection on your season and it is because of this that 2012 will be even better. Enjoy your 'off-season' and get ready to attack 2012.

  7. 8 PR's is awesome!!!!! Way to go! It's always a great thing to reflect and then GET EXCITED for 2012~~!!
