            Last July, I got the news that nobody ever thinks they’ll get. I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I quickly learned that it doesn’t matter your age, it doesn’t matter your fitness level, it doesn’t matter if you’ve run 20+ races or if you Crossfit, cancer doesn’t discriminate.  Life happens suddenly and you are forced to pause everything and deal with your own mortality.

Virtuosity is defined as “performing the common uncommonly well."  If you do a squat, you don't just do a squat- you nail that squat. Sloppy doesn't cut it. Even the simplest of movements can be the focus of continual repetition, practice, and mastery.

Ironman Arizona marked the end of my third year on the ironman "circuit." What a difference time makes. Before the start of my first full, Ironman Canada, I watched the sun rise while sitting under a tree and awkwardly yanking my wetsuit up over my thighs. My hands were clammy, and my brain was spewing a series of "I hopes." I hope I make the cutoff time, I thought. I hope I don't wind up burping Gu. And, of course, I really hope I don't drown.
