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"

Moving Forward

I hope everyone is enjoying the Tour. I know I am . I cannot remember the last tour that had this much drama. I do feel for those that have fallen and been injured. The drama I am talking about is that all of the main GC riders are really putting in the work. It will be a very interesting Tour to say the least, especially when we go to the mountains. Will Alberto prevail......... we shall see.

As for me I push on this week it is a recovery week, thank goodness. The four our ride last week had me theorizing the design of my chamois and the best placement for cream. I also solved most of the worlds problems and I am back debating on how am I going to get through an Ironman Tri without music. AHHHHHHH

I hope everyone else's workouts are going well. This week I am at home but this weekend it is back on the road for two weeks. Luckily I can take my bike and trainer on my trip to FL.

Pause...... deep saying.......

The only finish is the grave.

Little dramatic.... but it is the Tour season.

Happy Trails all.
