Just a man saying I am.
Just a man saying I am.
About Me
I am a husband and father first and foremost. I thought I had been doing sports my whole life. My kids are active in sports and in the past few years I have really focused on their careers as athletes. I caught myself one day pushing one of my kids. Saying "you have to push yourself, go past what you think you can do". The look she gave me, I felt I got back from her, hit hit me like ton of bricks. It was a look of what have you done to push yourself.... Wow, what have I done recently.

Professionally I pushed myself to the top of my field, Spiritually I have a relationship with my Holy Father, Mentally I am pushed with my career. I cannot say emotionally I am there because I am not happy with my physical self. I feel I am overweight, not seeking the next brass ring if you will. I had to push myself to find myself.

I originally wanted to find myself with cycling. I love the thought of pushing. A quote from Armstrong that goes [the winner of the tour is not the best cyclist but the one who can suffer the most]. It is not the reality of winning or losing but being pushed. To go past who you were and to who you are.

Lastly I want to use another quote. This one from the movie Rocky Balboa,

"What's crazy about going toe to toe and saying I am"

Back in stride

Hello one and all. It has been a long time since my last posts. I will spare you all with excuses of work, life and things that come up. Lets just acknowledge they exist along side of just being lazy. We often have to define them ourselves. I find that a lack of planning on my part creates a huge amount of strife.

The last two weeks I have rededicate myself I feel good, tired but good. The coach has me on what I think is a good plan of building and pushing the limits at times. I have the Full Ironman race in late August I am feeling better and better about it. I have to maintain focus and determination.

I read a quote from a Tri-Mag that said your condition and workouts have to become like an everyday thing you just do, just like brushing your teeth and putting on deodorant. It is just something you do. Well folks I look forward to hearing from you all and reading your posts.
