Who knew that when I started my Ironman journey last November, it would lead to: -- Great relationships with an entirely new group of friends
-- The physique I always wanted but could never achieve
-- A greater appreciation for nutrition and healthy living in general
-- Improved confidence and mental outlook
-- A deeper appreciation for discipline, sacrifice and tolerance of pain
-- A reunification with my passion for writing
-- And now...freelance writing opportunities!
Yep, after a long hiatus from freelance writing, I've decided to dive head-first back into that world. I'm working on two stories for a fresh triathlon magazine website and couldn't be more excited. I'm almost as excited as competing in an Ironman in three months.
Without this blog, I'm not so sure I would have gotten quite so much from my training. I never expected the Ironman to change my life the way it has. And this is only my second full season in the sport.
Certainly not me.
92 days and counting.
