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 twenty-two

What a run. I did not think I would hang in that well. The work-out called for 1:40. I was thinking wow, I have not been running more than 30 to 45 minutes since I have been sick. So I just started out slow as called for in about 2 zone. Stayed in the zone for the entire run. Stopped mid way hydrated changed out shoes to old ones. The ones I had on gave me a blister so went old school. I felt good about the run. The last miles were not hard but my rhythm was off, it may have been because of my left calf. It was tight and I like I was gimping on it. Never the less I did it........
