A long trip

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

So here was my traveling odysey that started Monday afternoon China time, and got me back early thursday my watch said like 68 hours of traveling (yes I timed it). I liked it – when you have hardly slept and get your 2nd and 3rd wind, don’t know what day it is, what time it is, where you are, and don’t know anyone around you…you feel the most alive right then :-) )

13 hour layover in Incheon airport (slept 4 hours in terminal)
17 hour flight to Atlanta (watched 4 or 5 movies..couldn’t sleep)
4 hour lavover in Atlanta
1 hour flight to Orlando
1 hour get bags and to Kristens

Adjust, Adjust, Adjust – China

Monday, April 20th, 2009

…well, I just deleted my lengthy race report b/c I just want to forget Sunday, and no one needs to read about that massacre too much…here is a quick paragraph that I shortened it up too:

Coming to my race in China, like most every Ironman I have done, I had no specific goal other than finishing and racing hard. I like to race this way, b/c you just can go with the flow of the day and make adjustments as you go. Sunday was a day of adjusting goals, and well, by about the tenth goal adjustment my goal was to walk it in the last 31k’s of the marathon – I didn’t exactly meet that goal and ended up in the med tent for 3-4 hours instead recuperating!

Congrats to the Ladies of TBB with great races, and to Matt for sticking it out on a very long hot day.

Even though things went bad, I still had a lot of fun with the guys in China up in M1-3. And I think the Shooters are still clogged?!?

I’m gonna miss all you guys and have had more fun the last 3 months than I have had in a long long time.

Mini Stop Mix

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Everytime I stop at the MiniStop or Gobstopper its like a party…same as in the Winstar and Taxis. It would of be cool if I could get a mix their playlist. I definately will miss this along with lots of other little things. Leaving here in a few days, I’ve been here since the 29th of January…not quite as long as Matt, but still a good chunk……Later on Subic!

…….Well I can’t think of anything to write about, just training, once in a while complaining :-) , and straining, trying not to do any fainting—in the heat, walk on the hot pavement burnt my feet, go home and eat some meat, and then for dessert something sweet—-like a milky way, I had a couple today, but now its time to get on my way—on the bike, you know I like—a nice ride, one that will glide, drink some Gatorade Rip-Tide—but not too much—-it’ll make you sick, real quick—if you got a belly full of that stuff, its kinda rough—okay thats it for now, brown cow, don’t be frow
