It happened, I kind of knew it would Ö

A few days ago I said to my wife, ďAnn Iím thinking of doing another Ironman next July.Ē To my surprise she said, ďIt is a great time in our life to do it! Iíll be training for the Marathon and it is before we plan on starting a family.Ē I couldnít believe it.
Last year I had a phone consult with KP about training for Kona. Going into it I was excited about talking about training. What I got was a simple message. Focus on being healthy number one. I have read that every month since then.
Kona, has come and gone and my once broken body is again 100% healthy. My overall life style has changed dramatically and my addiction to massive training volume is gone. Passing the message on to those I coach has also let me see the best results I have ever seen. Put another way, that phone call changed my life.
Today I did the longest run since last October of 16k. I have now completed my reading of Gordoís blog. All of it, with the archives. Ok, so not all of my obsessive personality is gone Even with this new goal my focus for the season wonít change; health, friends and enjoyment with the sport. I need to finish out my year of mental recovery after many years of trashing myself. A deep physical and mental recovery period seems appropriate. Being that I feel like a newbe to triathlon again, and have fallen in love with it, makes me think Iím on the right track.
Donít know why Iím posting this to you guys. I have talked with a friend, Mark Lemmon about missing Gordoís board a few times. I know I just read about getting off the internet but that place (gordoís board) was full of good advice. It seems there are many friendly faces with KP. Canít say Iím surprised. I hope to join the club.
Thanks for everything KP,
