Well the past month and a half has been a little worrisome for me…my stepfather had a heart attack and went through cardiac arrest on the way to the hospital, so honestly my mother and myself were not quite sure what was going to happen and how long he might be around…I traveled down to my hometown in Texas to be there for my family and try to be as much help as possible…after about a week in the local hospital, my stepfather was strong enough to get transferred to Houston, Texas which is known for great hospitals and after 6 weeks of not knowing what was going to happen, what to do, and just hoping, my stepfather has made it home and is doing so much better…it was quite a shock for myself and my mother to go through that, especially my mother and I am quite thankful that he is okay because I know how much they love each other…so I know it sounds cheesy but I encourage all of you out there to let your loved ones know how much you appreciate them and care for them because life can be so unpredictable
Well my race didn’t end as well as I would have liked, I was feeling pretty good on the bike but got a flat with a little over ten miles to go, put a new tube in and got another flat, so bit of a bummer, better mechanical luck next time
Well I’ve been back in the States for a little over a month now and coming into my first race of the season, New Orleans 70.3, next weekend. It’s hard to believe that it is already April but I’ve found that when you are training day in day out time really goes by quickly, even though particular days may seem longer than others. I am enjoying the day in day out training and applying the lessons I learned at training camp this year. It was great to become educated on the proper methods of training for triathlon and learning so much about yourself. I feel like I have grown new feet under me to help make the best of the opportunities I have and I will continue to keep trying to get the best out of myself on a day to day basis.
if this is Sparta, then Brett is definitely King Leonidus…its been so awesome training here in Krabi, its really tough but it is definitely making us hard and strong…its been such a wonderful experience so far and I feel very lucky to be here, I love all of my new teammates and they are a lot of fun…yes we are able to still squeeze out a little fun here…I’ll post some pics in my next post..
Hi everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself…my name is Jeff Cutrer and I’m new to Team TBB. I am very excited and grateful about this opportunity I’ve been given by Alex and Brett and look forward to seeing what the future holds.
A little about myself…I have only been involved in triathlons for a short time…my background is in athletics (that’s track and field for us Americans)….I was a middle distance runner from when I was 15 years old until 22, I was a miler and steeplechaser and got myself to the level where I was a 4 minute miler…not SUB 4 unfortunately…I had success but I knew I was never going to be a world beater…I think I’m a little too big haha…so I was urged by some friends to get involved in triathlons and I did so and definitely saw what all the fuss was about…it was such a great change and I absolutely loved the sport and I kind of decided I wanted to put all my eggs into that basket and try to see how good I could become…so I did my first 3 races well enough to get my professional license afterwards because I knew if I wanted to be great I had to race the best athletes…I don’t have many races on my resume because I had been finishing my degree at my university but I started my first true year of training seriously last year and was urged by a very close friend to try and get in touch with Brett and I did so and after a lot of talking and getting to know one another Brett decided to give me a chance, for which I am very thankful…he told me he really loved the idea that I was a blank slate and sort of a new piece of clay he could mold and since I have been working with him it has definitely helped me improve and I look forward to the future with Team TBB…I am really excited about the first camp and meeting everyone in person and training hard.
I also want to thank our sponsors for the support they give the team and appreciate their time and energy to making us the best triathlon team in the world.
