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.

Life lessons

I often think while I'm training the value I find in the planning, discipline and execution of preparing for an event.  I'd love to put it all down in this blog but unfortunately no one pays me to write this and I have to balance my desire to write about my experiences with my desire to have an income.

An old high school friend (thanks Diana!) turned me on to an blog posting that does a great job summarizing the life lessons one triathlete learned while training for his triathlon.  It's worth a read:
