Recently I had to make a personal decision, and honestly it was very tough. For years I've contemplated the hobby I love (cycling) vs. furthering my education in gaining my MBA. Finally, after much personal deliberation, I have chosen the MBA.
That being said, however, I still hold the last four (4) years with Julie as one of the best decisions I've made in my athletic career, which includes being a Division I NCAA athletic scholarship athlete in swimming. Julie was able to help me pull out the best possible cyclist in me with the limited training time we had available.
Things were not always smooth and easy, but neither is life. Julie helped me to bring focus and motivation to my narrow window of training opportunities. And with a full time job and family, including two kids, we were able turn a part time athlete into a multiple podium winner in the Masters 35+ 1/2/3 category.
If you train for a hobby or wish to excel in a sport while working on a slim window of time, Julie Young is your answer. She is an athlete herself, and completely understands the commitment(s) it takes to succeed. She is a leader and a motivator. She is not only a coach, but a partner. She is my friend and a valuable resource to my family and life.
Julie, thank you for four (4) great years...I only hope that in two years after my MBA, we can continue where we left off and get some more wins.
Your friend and advocate,
Cyclist - Category 2 Racer
