These are my teammates.

I am just so proud to part of a team, The New Mexico Outlaws. We have some major talent brewing in these parts. These folks will also be my roommates at Ironman Couer d' Alene. Not bad company, I must say!

These are my heroes of the day:
One is Brian. When he started he was an overweight newbie and over the last few years has taken triathlon by storm. I remember the day I realized he was faster than me on the swim-say what? Brian is a really smart psychologist, very organized, very enthusiastic and sweet. He is married to GeekGirl, who is also a gem. So he is S. Baboo to all of us in blog world. Here is his latest Ironman adventure. He is also, by the way, getting thinner everyday:

Then there is Maria. She started running a couple of years ago and biking last year and has obviously found her niche. She runs faster than anyone I have ever seen. After this short time in the sport, she is already gotten herself ranked 8th in the World in the 70.3 championships. Now Maria is a very humble, sweet tiny gal, who just makes you feel faster looking at her. I have hopes for getting faster just looking at her times. Here is her latest race:

These are my training peeps!

The team is inspiring, in so many ways. Everyone has SO MUCH to offer individually, and as a collective.
Goals, forward thinking, positive reinforcement...
Thanks for the post.
