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"

He's Back

Hello one and all,

I have been away for a while. I completed the half ironman and took a week off and had a real hard time getting back into the groove. Last week was my attempt to get back into it. I felt sloppy and awkward. This week was a little better.

By the way I wanted to bring up a comment I made in a post about feeling like a stump for not running the whole half ironman. Running today I realized that the mere fact that someone enters into a triathlon and finishes it regardless of the distances is great. If the need to walk comes then walk. Just never quit moving forward.
