Wow what a rough week! Can I start over??
I didn't want to share my personal problems on a blog and just wanted to talk about my training but what has happened this week has kept me from training so.. (I will keep the personal things to a minimum)..... My grandmother unexpectedly passed away on Sunday (mothers day). The funeral was Tuesday and my wife and I drove home that night. Wednesday my wife came home to find our house burglarized. Someone broke in through a window and took her jewelry and most/all of our small electronics.
During all this time I was dealing with sending my shoes back to trisports.com and they really didn't want to help with the broke shoes. They didn't understand that even though I bought these shoes over a year ago I only race in them. They have less than 60 miles of wear!! I was hoping to at least get prorated for the amount of miles I have put on them!. They werent having any of it and I couldnt handle dealing with more stress so my good buddy Anne from CEPsocks stepped up to the plate. Im really not sure what she did but a brand new pair of Zoot shoes arrived today via UPS (no charge). I cant thank her enough!!! After all Ive been through this week thats the last thing I needed to worry about was arguing with trisports.
So Im not running barefoot at my triathlon this Sunday (damn!!). .
My wife has raised a ton of money this week for Athletes for a Cure and she will be representing during her first 25k this Saturday!!
I ran Sunday after getting home from East TX. Tried to clear my mind... Ran the #tweet5k for AFAC. Thats the last training activity Ive had. Now, Im drinking Rum and Coke,, ,About to put my CEP socks on...
Anne and the CEP guys have been so great,, they by far have the best customer service out of any business I have delt with,,, they are real people that truly care about their customers and anyone willing to say hello..
