The little things

Cresting the hill that eats you out the saddle in the big ring with enough power to get aero at the pinnacle and work your way down the other side.

Finding that last bit of almond butter in the jar works perfectly for the sandwich you are making.

Mist rolling in after a stupidly hot day to make your morning run just perfect.

Seeing consistent 1:14’s in the pool again while stroking out easy 200’s after a big weekend of training.

Waking up next to someone who buys into your ideas to make the world a better place.

Getting a message from an athlete you are coaching, saying his average speed on rides is up 8km/h in the last 5 months.

Helping a friend conquer a fear.

Quiet time with a buddy in the middle of the day, talking about the health versus performance.

Getting your kit design back and it looks insane.

Signing that big deal at work.

Experiencing runners “high” while our riding your bike. Seriously!

Dont forget the little things out there. These have caught me in the last 5 days alone. In the haze of the final block of work for Ironman, it’s important to look around you and notice the little things. Some relate to training, some to friends, some to work but they are little moments that make life just a little more awesome.

When we stop seeing them it’s time to step out the ring and learn to appreciate our lives again.
