All year I look forward to the Rev3 Cedar Point 70.3 race. It is my priority race of the season and my goal to have a good day on the course. Because it is a big race, my parents make the trip to Ohio as well, so it is a great excuse for some family time as well. This year was even more special as it was the first time my in-laws were able to see me in an event, and that was great. However, even though I was racing and ready to go after it on Sunday, I was not the main event of the year…
It has been quite some time since my last post, but it’s only because life has been so great and busy. I have race reports I still need to finish from earlier in the season but knew I needed to write this report right away because this past weekend was a new, MORE meaningful kind of race success thanks to the generosity of so many people coming together for a common goal.
I love nothing more than being a dad, my kids mean the world to me and I would do anything and everything for them. I am most happy when we are doing something together, working on pinewood derby cars, riding bikes to school, playing in the pool, or going out for a walk. The last two weeks we have spent a different kind of time together, we have all been sick. UGH!
I am a man, so generally I am no good at being sick, I become wimpy, a bit whiney, and complain about everything. I am not proud of it, but its what I do. This time it was even worse because I was smack dab in the middle of some base training and doing really well with consistency. I could see gains in my fitness, my swimming felt like it was coming together and I was feeling confident in my long runs. Then Jack got sick. DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNN.
