Cordelia Chase as My Triathlon Coach – Inspiration Friday

I find that as I need inspiration I find it in the strangest of places.  Regular readers of this blog and danceswithfat will know that I am a major Buffy the Vampire Slayer nerd. I was looking around for stuff for my IronFat Pinterest board, and I found a collection of inspirational quotes from Cordelia Chase (played by Charisma Carpenter) and I couldn’t resist creating this post for Inspiration Friday:


On shopping for plus size athletic gear:

On trying to learn about gears by watching videos of pro cyclists who assume a level of knowledge far beyond mine:

On dealing with concern trolls:

On dealing with regular trolls:



On trying to do math on my long walks and bikes:

And finally, the picture that started it all, Cordy on Inspiration:

where's the damn weapon

When it comes to inspiration, I’ll take whatever I can get wherever I can get it, and I think that there’s a future for Cordelia in inspirational speaking!
