Goals and Secret Goals..

My friend Michael & I trained for Ironman Florida together in 2004. Long 100 mile bike rides create alot of philosophy you know..Anyway, we talked about how everyone has the "public goal" of a race. "Oh, I just want to finish" or "I want to beat my time from last year". These are the things you tell your friends, family and other trifolks. Let's stay humble here now. And then there is the "secret goal" that only you know. "I will have the race of my life and do under 6 hours in this half IM!" or "I, just this once will come in first in my AG at this really big race!" You know what I'm talking about if you have been in the sport long enough. I'll bet we all do this. Do you?
