Happy Birthday to Carrie

How lucky am I to have a wife ... not to mention a wife that is awesome. In fact, one of my friends asked me the other day ..."What are you trying to prove? You have already won." He is correct and wise beyond his years.

Without Carrie and Baron I would be wandering around trying to figure out what to do and how to do it. At least I am willing to admit it.

I love my wife.


I have trained fairly hard since the half marathon ... logging over seven hours of workouts since Monday morning. I was wiped out this morning. It is a good thing that I had a planned rest day in the middle of the week.

I had a strong January despite the foot problem. I ran over 70 miles, swam over 14 miles and biked almost 500 miles. That totals a little over 50 hours of training for the month. It is a bit light from where I should be, but I did not want to increase the time so much from December that I would over train. February is a shorter month, but my mileage and training hours will be even greater. I admit that part of the fun of the triathlon journey is keeping track of the statistics and analyzing the trends.
