On My Way Back



As I look back on 2007, my life was filled with changes. My training took a back seat to the everything else. The result was a lackluster and unfulfilled season. But remembering there is more to life than triathlons is a lesson I should learn sooner rather than later.

I might have lost all of you dedicated blog readers due to a long period of inactivity. There's not a lot of flair here, but hopefully I will win you all back.

I am making another attempt at Ironman. I could certainly use the support and camaraderie you gave two years ago. Things will, or rather are different now and the path I take to Madison will certainly be different from the last time.

Right now I am undertrained. Maybe even frustrated and lacking in motivation from my 2007 season. I may not even make it to the Lake Monona in September.

But I promise it will be a ride. Strap yourself in. I'm on my way...

I'm sure word will get out to the masses that you're back and in full force! Readers old and new should be abundant.

Good to see you back!

Back in the saddle....so to speak. I guess that's part of being a triathlete. Taking things as they come. I think we may need to help each other keep the enthusiasm for IM MOO. I really hope you can make it to the starting line this year. I sure would like to have your company on the course.

Good to see you back...

IMWI part 2, it is always better the second time around..

Sometimes, you just need a break. And then you come back hungrier and stronger. I have no doubt that this will be your year -- and will far outshine the difficulties of last year. Can't wait to track your progress!

Yay! I can tell you will be much happier with more training. ;-)

Nice header by the way, seems more cheerful than the previous one.
