SO, there's NO secret how much I admire this woman!! Definitely one of the most motivating people for me in this virtual world! So often I've wished I could train with her, or maybe she could just BE my trainer rather-ha!! Not only is she an AMAZING athlete with crazy wicked determination, she's an EXCELLENT training resource, a great encourager and a generous friend as she has offered to allow me to be her human fuel belt in Boston next year.... I will put on my shoe chip, then ride on her back, carry her gels and water, and finish the Boston marathon in sub 3:10!!! I'm confident that although I weigh more than her, her killer quads can handle it!!! (My memory is a little skewed here, maybe I just volunteered and she didn't offer.....)
ANYWAY, this weekend she's racing the Patriot HIM. She has worked SO hard for this, is TOTALLY ready and I'm SO EXCITED FOR HER!!!! If my math is correct for a short time we will actually be running at the same time! Kinda like running with a good friend only she will be kicking my ass after already completing 57 some odd miles of crosstraining!!
In true fashion Max and I got working on our mural. If you look closely there is a teeny tiny Ana Maria running and another teeny tiny Ana Maria swimming! I'm not sure this is a tri-bike and it kinda looks like it should have a big padded seat, a basket and a horn on the front but it came from the heart-ha ha!!!
BEST OF LUCK Ana Maria!
*Oh-and hoping you don't meet any animals in your path like the one next to me. I was too fortunate to come home from work to see it hanging on my wall yesterday! Yeah-that's a story in itself......
