Good bye

Hey team!!!!

After one week of reflexion, I’ve taken my decision and I’ll quite the NTC and the triathlon. I wanted to post something to say good bye to everybody, I've all been friendly with me since the first day and I would like to thank you for that!

Before coming, I said to my parents that I come here to see if I’m able (mentaly and physicaly) to rich, one day, the highest level in triathlon and apparently I’m not.
Mentaly it too hard for me to wake up every morning knowing that the 1st thing I’m gonna do is swimming… I just can’t do it and in the other hand I don’t really want to go through it.

I would also say that I found here a very good team with interesting people and it makes harder to quite. For me, it is one of the (if not the) best place to train in the world. Your 2 coaches are very implicated and careful and I really did appriciate it. This training structure is just perfect from my prospective and if someone ask me for a good place to train I’ll answer without hesitating your center. It is just not for me...

Good bye I’ll certainly see all of you once in a while at the pool !
