... you just have to have a good crash. It had been about three years for me, so I suppose I was due. How it happened is not so important; only that no one was really hurt and I didn't have to go to the hospital on my day off.
Better yet was my stop at Henry's on my way home. Everyone was staring at me and my ripped up shorts. The produce man even offered me a papertowel to mop the blood that continued to ooze from my elbow.

Looking better after a good shower!

That's gonna make for a good story, especially when I'm sport a bathing suit on Monday at Masters!

While cleaning my house the other day (I know... shocker! But it is rest week) I found this poster I've had since I was in high school. Not sure where it came from, but I have always loved what it says...

is what transforms a promise into reality.

It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions
And the actions which speak louder than words.

It is making the time when there is none.
Coming through time after time after time,
Year after year after year.

Commitment is the stuff character is made of;
The power to change the face of things.

It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.

This is the way I intend to live my life. Whether it be triathlon, medicine or anything else I endeavor to do, I want to be 100% committed!
