From my August 28th, 2008 blog post:
I'm going to have a coach starting in September! I finally bit the bullet and emailed the person I've really wanted to work with! I can't wait to have some real personalized guidance instead of a canned plan for once.
Who knew all the places I’d go in those 2 years and how much of a difference the Elf Herself (or her more serious side) would make in my life, training and race performance? Or that 2 years later, I’d be struggling to fit in my favorite pairs of jeans because of how big my biking thighs have gotten? :-) Today, it feels like old times…I have a swim test on the schedule. Gee, thanks Coach, I should have gotten you something special too!
