The Journey

The journey is more important than the destination.

Several years ago a friend of mine asked me if I would do the Fairlee Triathlon in Vermont. After training for three months, feeling like I was going to drown in the swim, feeling nauseus on the run, I crossed the finished line and was hooked.This led to my triathlon journey.

Please consider supporting my latest effort to raise money for Bretton Woods Adaptive through the Janus Charity Challenge at Ironman Lake Placid this July. Check out the Links I Like section of the blog or explore the BWA Fundraiser links.

Tour of Cali

I have a hard time watching most sports on TV. Team sports I get into some, baseball, football (I am a New Englander!). Almost any individual sport is a no way. Things like car racing (left, left, left) and golf (need I say more) I just can't do. These events only last a few hours.

However, once bike racing comes on I'm hooked, to the point where my family thinks I have some issues. My Tivo in July during the Tour de France is just about filled with race footage and I watch as much as I'm able.

The Tour of California just started and I'm getting a little taste of what July will be like. Versus only has an hour of coverage a night but I'm hooked none the less. I haven't been following during the day online like I do during the tour but it is good to get some motivation from watching these guys just as my training is beginning to ramp up.
