Balance? Bull dust! 32 days to go
Lets be honest, putting a permanent tattoo somewhere on your body because you participated in a sporting event is pretty close to a cult. Also reminds me of that cartoon video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=B03dFMG8nR4 No one can deny that it may be very funny, but it’s sadly true.
I have been doing this sport for 20 years now – started with a little sprint distance in 1997, and did my first Iron Man in 2000.
It is at times like this that I am soooo hugely grateful for a supporting wife and kids that tell me they understand “daddy must do triathlon”. Sharon, just knows I will irritate her if I don’t at least do some training.
Somehow this sport, and there are other sports I know of, becomes ingrained in your inner being.
For now I have promised my family that after KONA, I am ‘taking a break’.
I owe it to them more than anything. What will happen after a month or two of ‘taking a break’ – I’ll cross that hurdle when I get there.
