Ever since I was a young child I was always driven by the reward at the end. When I first got into cycling and running the reward was my health and just finishing a century ride and a marathon. I'm five years into my endurance career and I'm always looking for that next challenge.
I'm a middle of the road runner and above average cyclist, I won't win any races but I'll be in the top 10% of finishers. That's not bad, but I want to be better. As my racing season gets longer and longer each year I need something to strive for. For a diabetes conquerer that's has a very strict diet I reward myself with a blizzard from Dairy Queen for a top ten finish of a race or if I win my age group.
I have yet to get my blizzard this season and I'm not gonna lie I'm a little upset about that. I'm craving an Oreo blizzard which means I need to work harder and get that top ten finish!! The fall is duathlon season and I'm expecting a very successful duathlon season.
