Yes I'm still out here

So it's been a while since I have last posted. I didn't realize it has been so long. Once I got into recovery after Ironman Wisconsin I was in deep. Work has helped me with my recovery. It's been almost non-stop since the beginning of September.

Looking at my calendar I have worked every weekend since. It's kind of been nice to focus on something other than training and racing but the work is starting to drag, especially when I do want to get in a run or ride. Working during the early morning hours, like 2AM, doesn't lend itself to long early morning runs. The only plus is that my work pays for my passion, so I'm glad to have a job.

So what have you been doing? I've been lurking and reading other blogs when I have time. The Ironman Championships were awesome. I had two friends who were able to race this year through the lottery. I was able to track them through the They both had great finishes.

Today I was watching the results for the 70.3 championship race in Clearwater. This time Cleveland was represented by three local guys. Jim LaMastra rocked the course with a 4:07 finish that placed him third in the 30-34 age group. What a stud.

I'll try to get some more out here for you. I've seen some great quotes and have made some observations that I want to share with everyone.

Game recovery mode.
