The off season is a hard time for me. At this point all of my aches and pains are finally gone and I really miss training and racing with my team. If you are a triathlete you know what I mean when I say I love what I do for a living but the thing I look forward to the most is getting together with my friends to put in a long tough workout on Saturday or Sunday. Now that the temperatures outside have dropped and the rain falls all the time we don't get out together as much. I got together with Mark this week for a few minutes and realized that we hadn't seen each other since late July!!! I couldn't believe it. It had been about two and a half months since I had seen Mark. Mark is one of my favorite training partners because he is a competitive freak just like me. Sometimes when we are taking off on a long ride Mark will remind me that we are going for a long ride and that we are not going to race but it always turns into a race no matter how hard we try not to race.
As I watched this video I thought of all of the things I achieved this year and the things I want to achieve next year. I can't wait to get started.
