Who is your go to training partner? Who will be up before the sun, before everyone else, no matter the misery?
On a side note, so many partners, spouses, significant others, and family do not get to see the work put in before the day starts. I have to think some may just wonder what it's all for and what it's all about. That said, without that level of support and understanding from your tribe, this would not be possible. Just as incredible the efforts out training and racing, are those that are done in support of this.
