Well, it was a tough day for many BSLT 70.3 racers this past Sunday. But for the hubs, so much of it was not in his control. A flat tire on the way to the race, a flat tire during the race, 20mph winds, and 110F heat. Craziness! We just looked at each other after the race, laughed, and said, “oh well, what can ya do?.”
I know what you can do..…
Just endure and move past it. My devotional from that morning summed it up PERFECTLY!
“Stay Calmly conscious of Me today no matter what. Remember that I go before as long as with you into the day. Nothing Takes me by surprise. I will not allow circumstances to overwhelm you, so long as you look to Me. I will help you cope with whatever the moment presents. Awareness of My Presence contains Joy that can endure all eventualities.”
So here it is, the good and the bad, beginning and the end, the black and the white.
Race Morning….a little rushed but ready.
Fastest swim and first out of the water and onto the bike.
Waiting for bike updates……and waiting…..
The thumbs down signal on the run. I knew something had gone wrong with that signal! haha.
But our friend Kelly (right) was the woman’s pro champion.
Now that deserves a thumbs up!
The post race walk to the car. A little slow and tired after getting an IV.
But I think the Oreos might have given him a little pep back (aka sugar high).
Milk’s favorite cookie made for a hungry but happy black and white cookie smile.
That was until the post race sugar rush wore off and the heat came back.
Some cold towels and Gatorade to the rescue!
An hour later we were on the road again back to you Austin.
a little tired, a little dehydrated, but overall in GOOD SPIRITS!
Thanks to all the FABULOUS race crew and local volunteers who took such great care of all those athletes.
And congrats to all those athletes who endured a hard day….smiles and all!
Cheers to a recovery week and quality eats!
