"This coaching thing is working out really well for me. It's exactly what I need. I know it goes way beyond just telling me what to do and when. You're planning my workouts based on my injuries to help me not get re-injured and get me ready for my races but the planning is what makes it doable for me.
Thanks again, I know it's early in the process but I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you! You're much more than just a coach, you're also an awesome cheerleader and encourager!"
"You know, you're pretty good at this coaching thing. I really appreciate that you recognize tri is just a part of most athlete's lives and that you don't make me feel bad about missing some workouts. At least when it's only February..."
"Thank you for helping shape me as a fitness coach so I can realize my dream. Thank you for always pushing me to be better. A better athlete, a better friend, a better coach, and a better person. Most of all thank you for being real!!! It's refreshing to see."
