Talking to Elizabeth about the crash. Ouch!
I crashed (or was crashed into - by a drunk, fat, 28 year old female in a Chevy Blazer at 5:45 pm) in 1998 3 days before a Kona qualifier I was aiming at. It sucks. It is horrible. When I came back I made one deal with myself - I'd live a healthy lifestyle and get my fitness back and one day stand on the top of a podium somewhere one day.
Marit is a strong gal. She is fit and strong. She will bounce back.
Marit - keep your head up. Don't cry about what happened because you cannot control that. What you can control is your effort to return and your attitude (which is great to begin with). Attach some emotion to your dreams of your return to peak fitness and one day Ironman.
