Smilepacing is a term that refers to the way that I train and race as a triathlete. Particularly while racing, I rarely look at my watch. I do not want to be a slave to the digits on my wrist, or on my bike computer, as that takes away from the fun of the event. I prefer to pace myself by going as fast as I comfortably can – as fast as I can go while still wearing a smile on my face. After all – that is why I train and race. I chase that endorphin high, that feeling of accomplishment, that knowledge that I am, with each stroke or spin or step, becoming healthier and stronger. And the fact is, if I don’t enjoy something, I don’t do it. So the idea is to make everything fun. With the right attitude, that is possible and even likely. In fact, the smilepacing philosophy applies to everything in life. At work, in parenting, in relationships – seeing the positive, having fun, living with passion, living with gratitude, and making the world a better place - are what it’s all about. I can help you figure out your purpose, and how to incorporate smilepacing into your life too!
