    I think even pros have those days, which I guess means we never get past them! Every race teaches us, and it sounds like this one had a lot of lessons. Now you know how you can persevere even when things don’t go well.

    I had that exact same experience at the Nashville ride. My head is my worst enemy sometimes. I think my thoughts start and then they just snowball, until the point it is a miracle I finish at all.
    You did awesome! I am in awe of you and want to be like you when I grow up. Not a runner. But a person who rides a bike and doesn’t whine about it. :-)

    As you wrote, “Some days you have it, and some days, you just don’t.”

    I’ve had races where the best I can say about them is that I finished. I keep them in mind as small victories when I’m not sure I can go the distance. They help quiet that small, lying voice that says I can’t. (They’re also pretty good motivation when I don’t want to go swim/bike/run/whatever.)

    You are truly a member of Team 4:13…
    Philippians 4:13..I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
    That finish line is the same for the first person who crossed it and the last.
    I am proud and in awe of you for going out there and running the race!
    One breath….one step…one mile….finish line. Congratulations Victoria! You rock
