In a hard fought battle that saw @kflynnfaz
go into her last lap of the race sitting in 4th place, she was over one minute down to 2nd and 3rd who had been together the entire race. That meant in order to make the podium here at World Championships, she would have to close that gap in under the last 17 minutes. 😳😳
That was a tall order and I knew it. I also knew that the race isn’t over until it’s over. She dug deep and turned herself inside out. When she came through the feed zone 9 minutes later, she had bridged that gap....SAY WHAT?!?!?!
HOLY SH** SHE HAD DONE WHAT LOOKED TO BE IMPOSSIBLE. 💥💥
She had approximately 8 minutes left in her race. I knew this was going to play out one of two ways. If she had that much energy to be able to make that jump across, she was either going to go right over the top of them and finish second, or she was going to pay dearly for digging that deep and not be able to hold on to them for the finish.
I got nauseated in the feed zone waiting to see how it was going to play out...really nauseated. I hate this part of the job.
When the three of them came back into view, less than 2k from the finish, Kym was off the other two by 5 seconds. She wasn’t going to be able to stay with them. 😞
She finished an amazing 4th place, about 10 seconds back from 3rd place.
An amazing race with an effort so deep I’m still blown away at it. 😁😁
4th place at World Championships...awesome!! 😊😊
I’m super proud of that never quit attitude today that gave an incredible result.
NEVER QUIT when you’re chasing something you want. You never know how things will play out until you cross that finish line.
Never give up on yourself or your dreams.
You’re worth it ❤️
The person who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The person who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever seen before.
It's time to get your happy on!! No matter what day of the week it is, what time it is or what month it is. Your "happy" is a mindset shift. A shift that happens when you know happy is fleeting, but true joy comes from within. Joy starts when you take care of YOU. ❤
You've heard it a hundred times, so my question for you is WHY haven't you started? What EXACTLY is stopping you? Fear? Doubt? Unbelief? Yeah, I get it. I was there too, but you're STILL going to have those same things stopping you whether it's a week, month or year from now. You'll have them until you actually START and then I promise, they'll lessen with time. It just takes one small step. I've got you!! Let's do it TOGETHER!! ❤📩❤
Be the kind of woman who SHOWS UP for her life
Be the kind of woman who understands that she was MADE for MORE
Be the kind of woman who BELIEVES that she is capable of doing amazing things in this world
Be the kind of woman whose own dreams make her nervous... and then go ahead and DO THEM ANYWAY
Be the kind of woman who NEVER asks permission to be HERSELF
