Quote Of The Day
“The first time you whip out your credit card to pay for your business class ticket to travel to your first meet of the year you will feel sick to your stomach. That’s thousands of dollars you have no idea you’ll get back. You’re sitting there typing in your passenger info wondering if you’re in shape enough to make the cost of this ticket back in prize money. You’re second guessing your training, you’re texting your coach begging for reassurance. You hit ‘book now’ and that rock in your gut settles deeper. I remember thinking, ‘I need a drink’ I was so stressed.”
