So last year and this year, I have worked with local triathlete and "coach", MG. MG helps several of us out with our training plans and provides so much insight, motivation and a wealth of knowledge. I have the utmost respect for him as a person, as an athlete and as a coach. I was just reading his race report from Steelhead in which he put together an incredibly well executed race with a most impressive time and earned himself an outright spot to the Ironman 70.3 World Championships. I am sooo thrilled for him! It means a lot to me that I know he walks the walk. He puts in the work and is one of the most disciplined athletes I know and it shows! I was reading his race report which ended with his favorite quote from the endurance sporting world, which I love too and just wanted to share (especially because this morning felt like one of those "don't" days)-
"Good athletes train when they want to, the great ones train when they don’t."
