||FLYING OFF THE START LINE||
...And the race day pictures continue. Almost finished typing up blog post so look out for the race recap no.1 coming soon. Braced the rain, thoroughly enjoying getting well and truly drenched on this morning's run. Dodging puddles and sliding through the mud is definitely my idea of fun, always enjoy extreme weather runs as they feel like a real adventure.
This moment. It defined my weekend. My first race of the weekend began with my name being called to head to the first wave of pro athletes. “From the United States...Tiffany Palmer” I kept thinking...me? Really? Pinch me. This smile is everything. I started in the corral with a few doubts. Are they sure they seeded me right? Do I belong? As I was heading to the start line those doubts disappeared. Yes! They did seed me right. And yes! I belong here. Yes! I put in the work and now it’s time to enjoy it. I gained a new set of confidence I didn’t even know was missing standing among the top females in the world.
I’ve had so many supporters (thank you) tell me I belong, but it was always me who had the slight doubt. That’s gone now and it’s because of THIS moment. Thank you to EVERYONE who believes in me and I can finally say I 110% believe in myself. Never let anyone, especially yourself hold you back. You deserve this. You work for this. Allow yourself to feel like a total badass human! Because...YOU ARE!
