On this medal Monday, I am so proud to have been able to share the race experience yesterday with my partner in crime. Three years ago when we first met, Stephanie and I began training together for her first triathlon and my first half-Ironman together. Since that first triathlon, Steph has been incredibly busy developing her career passing the UK and California bar exams and presenting at numerous industry conferences. Unfortunately with an injury last year and her demanding work, she has not been able to race since.
Over the last couple months, I have been excited to see her overcome her injury, build confidence, train for the upcoming @lamarathon
, and pursue her drams outside of the boardroom.
Her performance yesterday in the Pasadena Half Marathon was truly remarkable. The fact she was able to set a new personal best of 1:57 on a challenging course, after two knee surgeries, with scoliosis, and a demanding and unpredictable work schedule is truly inspiring.
The keys to her success are pretty consistent with what we all know we should be doing (eating healthy, showing up for your runs, stretching, limiting alcohol, and surrounding yourself with other like minded people who normalize your behaviors and make the miles fly by (thanks @dtlarunning
🙏), but the level of discipline she shows making almost every single workout and stretching daily, is something we can all learn from her. By doing this it will allow us all to continue pushing for better and faster.
I can’t wait to see her at that LA Marathon finish line and know that the discipline she brings everyday will inspire me to get there in the best shape possible too 🤗. #onwardandupward #runlosangeles #medalmonday #sunnycalifornia #losangelesmarathon #sub2hours #inspired
