Tin Man
Making a decision whether to target and Ironman in 2010 at the ripe old age of 42!

Winter blues and week 10

I want food!

As my training time increases finding myself scavenging around the house and office like some form of Jackal. Checking peoples desks as I walk around to see if there is any surplus (or unwatched food) available. It is a real challenge to eat heal...
