Guarded Optimism

Our hometown, Durham, NC, is part of a national movement to end homelessness in ten years. This weekend, our local paper highlighted the progress that the city has made to date. The story also included a quote from our favorite triathlon cheerleader and Genesis Home Executive Director. He and other housing advocates spoke of the "guarded optimism" they feel about the campaign work so far.

The story left us thinking that guarded optimism also sounds like a racing motto! We put in the training time, prepare our equipment, show up and hope for the best...knowing that anything can happen on race day.

One month to go until our next race -- and our optimism is high.
