This is one of the few times in my life that I am ready for a year to finish. Not that I am wishing my life away. It just sucked in every aspect.
The worst part was the decline of my father's health leading up to his passing in August. I know that he was 90 but he was so full of life. In March, he fell in church and was not found by anyone for hours. That seemed to be the beginning of the end. I was blessed to spend many weekend with him and he was able to take a veterans trip to DC with my son. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of him many times.
I did not do any triathlons this year and just felt crappy. Finally, I believe to have found a huge problem with infections around my teeth. This led to having all my teeth removed the week before Christmas and implants put in. Due to a problem encountered, I will be on a soft diet until November of 2013. I so far have lost 11 lbs. and everyday feel an improvement.
Tomorrow, I am of restrictions since the surgery and can begin to work out again. It will be digging out of quite the hole but I have some exciting goals for 2013.
