How is your Tuesday?...

Mine has been overflowing with good news! Do you ever get in a rut where it just seems like it one thing after another knocking you down? You just kind of bide your time making the best of things and hope for some good news to keep you smiling. I got TWO bits of good news today that will keep me going for a while :) Think of this as a Now and Later candy. You know, eat one now save some for later. In the interest of brevity and saving something to blog about later this week, I will tuck my second piece of news away and save it for later.

My triathlon group is in need of a swim coach for the upcoming season. The one we had previously moved to the other side of town which, in Atlanta, is 45 minutes to an hour away. No one can blame her for not being able to make the drive. I volunteered to take her spot so I will be the swim coach for our group. I am really excited to help out as this fits into my "giving back" plan for 2011. The group tends to be new triathletes so it will be cool to see them progress and improve especially with the swimming since that tends to be the weakest leg for most new triathletes. I cannot wait to get started!

That's awesome. I'm actually leaving my tri-group for next year because of the driving to train. It gets hard to justify driving more than your training session lasts.

Best of luck!
