It's a sad day for those of us who wanted to believe in Lance and that's all I really can say about that. I haven't been able to bring myself to watch the interview because I have feared his sincerity would be lacking. Bid Daddy Diesel put it perfectly and instead of writing more about it I'll just let him say it. As my buddy at One Hour Iroman said to me "You've still got me" He was absolutely right! My fellow age groupers are my true inspiration and are the reason I even ventured into the world of Ironman! If it wasn't for those special interest stories I'd see on TV every year and the hard work I'd see my friends go through to get there I would never have thought "You know what I could do that!" So to all of you out there in the daily grind that still find the mental fortitude and physical strength to have a part time job of Ironman training on top of your day job, THANK YOU!! You are my true inspiration and I don't need anyone else to look up to!
This weekend is supposed to be warm especially compared to how it has been around here lately, highs in the upper 40's and even better news I've been able to get some workouts in lately where I feel good and not dizzy so I think I'm going to try and venture outside this weekend. Try a little jogging and definitely some hiking. I'm excited for a three day weekend!
GOOD LUCK to all my fellow running buddies that are in Phoenix running races this weekend! I wish I could be there with you but I'll be cheering from here!
For all of you weekend warriors out there go out, get dirty, have fun, and report back so I can read all about it!
