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"

Day ten

mdvcostinby mdvcostinFeb 18th 2010
Well I did not get the full work out I wanted. This day was a rest day, but I wanted to put in a little extra because of previous days of not being able to work out. It was not a lot but it was a key day. I rode for about 45 minutes. The reason for the key was that i replace my winged bars with regular bars with clip on aero-bars. there may some issue with them. I am going to do some tweaking. I felt a little pain in my left shoulder but it may be just me getting used to it

For those who are keeping up, or passing me, I got back last night about 0100am. I slept in in to 0800. Wow did I needed that. Today was busy lots of luggage at work today but that comes with it.

Got big news my son is seated number 2 in the wrestling regionals coming this weekend. I am super psyched. Top four move on the state meet the following weekend. Whew, keep your fingers crossed.

Keep moving on folks.
