You pour yourself into something, proudly give it your all and connect deeply.  When you have taken it so very far letting go is tough but history & gratitude should not get in the way of the future.  That will always be a part of you as you go on but you have to acknowledge when the time has come to push for the next adventure when you’re a person who finds growth and progress to be the most addictive motivator of all both in sport and in life. These are lessons I’ve learned about myself through triathlon and continue to apply to all aspects of my life.
