Honors

I think back on my Half Ironman experience from time to time and am completely stunned that I was able to accomplish something of that magnitude. It really must have been a fools blend of ignorance and divine intervention.

Granted, I put in a lot of long hours training but those hours were forgotten almost as soon as I crossed the finish starting line.

This is why I was so honored that the Hellgate Road Runners chose me as the recipient of the Special Athletic Achievement Award for 2007. To me, this award isn't about crossing the finish line. It's about doing the work necessary to get to the starting line.

I'd also like to congratulate the other award winners on a fantastic year of running. Kudos!

Great job! It's amazing what can happen sometimes when you set a goal and work toward achieving it. When are you going to train for the full ironman?

I tried commenting on this last week, but it kicked me out. Hopefully this works.

Anyway, congratulations!
