2009 to 2010
2009 has been a good year for me. I PR’d a lot of races but that was expected since I started training more (due to having more time and recovering from my wreck). I set a PR for the half marathon, 10k and 5k. I also PR’d most of the triathlons I entered but I never made it to a podium finish. 4th place in my age group was common this year. I think I raced in more triathlons in a year than I ever have. My wife and I volunteered at IMCDA and I signed up the next day for 2010. I made it to the 2 year mark since I was hit on my bike, one year anniversary at my job and of course a wonderful first year anniversary with my beautiful wife, Cathlene. I had another shot at Longhorn 70.3 where I did the bike portion of the relay. As Jason Lester would say, 2009 was “epic”…. But I’m thinking 2010 will be more than “EPIC”. I won’t be competing in as many races this year but with Ironman as my focus I won’t have time for many. I am giving it all I’ve got these next 6 months. Ironman will fulfill this empty space lurking around me, it will give me back something I believe was lost in 2007, it will somewhat, finish what I started…..?
