Inspiration comes in many facets and sources. I have been inspired by clients, class participants, and friends. Using these sources, my life and training have been enriched to push me further than I ever thought I could go. I never thought I would do triathlons, bike centuries, run 5Ks to marathon and run up Mount Washington when I started exercising. A friend name Bob planted the first seed to start running to stay in shape during bike off season. My first 5K was Yankee Homecoming in Newburyport which has become traditional race for me but now do the 10 miler.

As you train more, you get injured that you need to overcome it to fight your way back. When it is tough, you can get inspire by people with their own challenges and disabilities. You learn from them how to overcome your own issues then think yours are nothing compare to them. Age creates another obstacle, getting slower, but you see cyclists, runners and triathletes redefine it that can blow you away.

The one inspiration you can get is from yourself, do what you love. It will give you a path to long life with a smile on it. It might be a bumpy road but seek the seed that will help you continue on the correct road. Keep an open mind and never say you cannot do it. You might be surprise where it will lead you.

I hope this blog will inspire or answer questions to swim, bike, run and/or living a gluten free life. I will cover many topics that will help get you over the bumpy road or make training easier. My clients, runners, swimmers and triathletes have asked questions that many of you have asked which prompt me to do this blog. If you have a good idea for a subject let me know.
