Good luck to all doing GFT this year! I hope that some of you write a report. I'll be back again next year. Enduradad

  • Enduradad I just got back from a two day work trip. Temps here are a bit cool 46 this morning, but still ok for morning run. I can tell by the times and distances I'll be way behind both of you. I scheduled my massage for Thur. at Massage Envy. Seemed to have good reviews and they are in Clermont.

  • Enduradad Work keeps getting in the way of my training! I need a Sponsor.. Since I will be out on the course longer they should get more ad time. Also more people see the back of my shirt than the leaders. Heck, I've not seen a leader after the gun even once. I'm also in a higher demographic SLOW. If anyone knows who I can contract let me know.

  • Enduradad I found out that doing an Ironman doesn't make you one. It's "becoming" an Ironman as you do the work to get there. Crossing the line is just the reward, and as they say; it's a feeling you can't understand until you get there. It's hard to believe it's already mid-October. If anyone's intrested we can plan a few activities for pre-race. A course caravan, a bag packing session, and maybe nail painting for us old Tribe memebers. Also I have some tips for support teams. They can send me a note at if they want tips.(secret stuff that can't be told to racers!) More Stones!

    • EnduradadYellowcake,
      You need to tell us what your friends and family think about you training for IM? I bet they treat you like you need mental help, and that you're going to kill yourself.
      Back when I did my first they required you have a wittness sign that you were of sound mind and body. My wife refused. Also my boss once asked me to not let a client know about IM because he thought I might die, or miss months of work.
      What's Yellow cake stand for?

  • Enduradad Race this weekend went well, but I'm old and slow! Things feel good so far and I think I'll be ready for Black Sept. Funny to think you can look forward to that kind of hurt. What I remember is the feeling in Oct. when you actually feel like you've changed. Thought for the Day: You can dream about it, or do it! It's your choice.

  • Enduradad Mark, Welcome, which race will you be doing? Tomorrow I get to race the Local Olympic Tri. It's sold out so swim will be a killer. Nothing like throwing 600 people into a lake and tell them to swim toward the same orange bouy. More Stones!

  • Enduradad ok, just minutes until the Olympic Tri. I wish I could leave work and go watch. Thought for the day: Ironman beats everyone, those that are less beaten are called winners.

  • Enduradad Thought for the day: "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." -Theodore Roosevelt
