Registration for Ironman Florida 2014 is complete. Roughly one year from now I will be on the beach at Panama City Florida staring out at the ocean squinting in the rays of the newly risen sun. Its a familiar feeling. The nervousness deep in the pit of my stomach, the impatience for the starting canon, and the desire just to get on with it are almost overwhelming and the only comfort is that there will be roughly 2000 people standing around me with the same feeling or worse. I can't help…Continue
The challenge of Tri, the personal planning & comittment to oneself to be able to enter races and compete, to be able to do at my age what I thought was no longer possible!

I've also become a new…Continue
