Last year was a big year for me, I managed to quit smoking, dropped 50+ pounds, bought a bike and took up Tri. I even managed to fall into a group of Veterans called Team RWB and took over as their media guy.
My first race was a "Try a Tri" in Mountain Grove, MO. Took me almost two hours to swim 300 meters, bike 7.5 miles and run a mile and a half, I got injured a few weeks before the race i had my sights on but did find one towards the end of the year in St Louis and finished that full sprint in about the same amount of time with four minutes to spare.
This year has popped off with more of a fizzle.
Long hours at two jobs and a falling out with my coach left me with the energy of a sloth who has discovered edibles.
Anyway, I was perusing through my phone found that I still had the BT app and remembered telling Alice that I would probably be back.
Sooo, yeah, here I am, going after the original goal. I have an Olympic lined up in July and 70.3 in the chute for September.
Hoping to meet a few of you in person along the way.
