It’s about you.
Yeah, I get it that the traditional M.O. of blogs & blogosphere have been of the ‘all-about-me‘ variety.
But let’s face it, after you’ve read a few entries of what workouts I’m doing, which ones life interrupted, and the prototypical ENDLESS volumes of text that some will devote to a single race-report……it just gets old.
Reality….as coach, it’s just not about me.
So when I considered how best to use this medium, I felt like it should reflect the very things I catch myself running my mouth about most: The lessons learned from YOUR training successes & failures, YOUR race wins and losses, as well as the the far reaching effect of calculated preparation and competition on YOUR lives.
So if you haven’t figured it out by now, the truth is that each of you coach ME.
Sure, there will be (brief ) Team7 member race-reports, announcements, & updates. Yes, we’ll talk training. Of course, the X’s and O’s and science will be a topic not missed. And, of course, video and pictures will be aded as my technical acumen gets up to speed.
But at the end of the day, I ultimately hope to present these details in the larger context of the the things they teach us about the sport, about life, about ourselves. Daily, I’m amazed at how the sport, both, reflects and shapes us.
In short: It’s about you.
