Just getting started

The initial mystery that attends each journey is: how did the traveler reach his starting point in the first place?
--Louise Bogan

Goal 1: Finish REV3 ironman-distance race(Sep 9) in 13 hours. If that fails ... finish it in 17.


  • Swim: work on stroke efficiency, continue regular workouts
  • Bike: build overall fitness & efficiency
  • Run: biggest opportunity area; build overall fitness; half marathon in the spring?
