today was a happy day , people often , hope to do something , whether it is a sportsman or acedemic ,but most experienced teachers know , when a student , is only wishing , not really believing ,
well , today , was a big turning point for our apprentice and our team massuer .
she has been here , she has been training , and has participated inher first race and did a good job , but i was never convinced , that her goal of completing an ironman in her 18th yr , was what she wanted .
she talked the talk , but the coach and the pupil had , a pretty hard talk , that all of you have had at sometime , with the boss .
i asked her the hard questions , and she didnt give me any answers verbally at all ,just walked off and went to bed .
next morning , bike was gone , and so was holly , so i took the swim set , and drove the car , on a hunch to the run track , i know her breeding .
aand there , with no team mates , no boosters , but our 5 furry friends lying on the track to see her ,
with water bottles spread out , and round and round she was going, with a look in the eye , that said
i can do this ,
a ride over to the track and holly whacked out 30 x 800 just like "all the ironman do "then ride home
did the boss get his answers .?
in the best possible way , a future ironman can answer ,
deeds people deeds ,
you would all be so proud of her .
just thought you would like to know ,
we got a real one here .
how does ordinary , become extraodinary?
for me it always been not about adding talent but adding the extra!
well done holly well done
