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"

Good day. With the bum ankel acting up I thought I would give it a break. I opted to run on the tread mill for an hour vice outside on pavement.

I felt good not a lot of pain starting out and no pain after 10 minutes, go figure, ha ha ha. Heart rate stayed in 70 zone for whole work out feeling fit.... Thus far. LOL.

See out on the road.

Peronsal note I am getting stoked. Thursday I get go back home and see my family. It has only been three weeks but I miss them terribly. Sorry for lack of spelling skills using blackberry.

I forgot the foot pic... Next time
