Editor’s note: Alison Starnes was one of the favorites going into the Women’s Individual Time Trial Final last Sunday at the Pan American Games. She finished fifth, just 3 seconds out of a podium spot. She reflects below on the frustrations of being an elite athlete, spending 99.9% of your time preparing and only 0.1% of your time able to show the world what you’ve prepared to do. The pressure is intense!
When unfortunate events occur, you are supposed to then think of the positives.
