Jenny Davidson’s been my fitness hero* this year, with all her triathlon training and fabulous posts about it. Today she has a wonderful post remembering a friend who died and talking about how she will remember him when she swims. In it, she says:
To earn the approval of a magically good teacher by hard work rather than by talent is one of the most satisfying feelings in the world.
(And, Jenny, I’m still terrified of clipping in; maybe someday. For now, I’m sticking with yoga, which often feels dangerous enough.)
*In addition to Christopher, that is, who’s been pulling 200 mile weeks on the bike lately.
