Why is this blog here?

I write this blog – a series of letters to myself – to chronicle my journey of of doing difficult things. The spark for this endeavor was my attempt to come out of a dark period in my life. I was overweight, feeling emotionally flat, and struggling with important relationships. On top of that, I’d just experienced a failed business and I was grappling with feelings of failure and self-worth.

Instinctively, I knew that doing something very hard would require me to focus my mind, body, and spirit in a way that would force them all into alignment. Triathlons are what I chose, and Ironman Texas 2020 became my ludicrous goal. I didn’t think I could do it, but I decided to go after it anyway.

I don’t want to lose the lessons along the way, so I share many of them here.

Feel free to leave a comment or send an email with your thoughts, I’d love to hear from you.

2hr Z2 🚴🏽 + 1hr z2 πŸƒπŸΎ βœ….
Today’s focus was fueling. Pre-ride, on the bike then proper recovery. Getting all three has been difficult for me. Today I think I got it right and I felt electric ⚑️ from beginning to end πŸ‘πŸ½.

Sunrise bendy-stretchy πŸ§˜πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ #progress - 1st time getting into an elbow handstand πŸŽ‰πŸ˜. It was totally rushed and uncontrolled because I wanted it so, so badly that I did whatever I could to get it done #impatient. Now, I’ll slow down and develop the strength and exercise control to flow into the pose properly.

I forgot my swim trunks so only half of my two-a-day 🏊🏽 🚴🏽 got done πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ.

I got in some bendy-stretchy spinning happiness today. My thighs are sore from yesterday’s track work 😬.
