I should have just written this a long time ago but I haven’t. I am officially retired from triathlon training and semi-retired from trying to keep up with the sport I love. If they showed triathlons in the general media then maybe I could keep up more, but honestly the mba experience takes over every waking minute (and you have lots of waking minutes vs sleeping ones) and I intend to get the most out of it. It has been strange to not report on races anymore and instead just try to mentally remember dates for signifcant races and at least think of who might be there, in contention, etc. Since Chicago I have missed writing about USAT Nationals, the Minnesotan triathlon scene, Samantha and Michellie pulling out of the big dance, and the big leadup to Kona for Ironman World Championships. Today was the US Open Championship (Greg Bennett and Lisa Norden won), while my buddy Aaron Sjogren smoked the Twin Cities Marathon. But then again all I had was a few minutes at JFK to check on this…hopefully I can remember to watch a little bit of Kona next Sunday!
Anyway, I do miss writing on this site and keeping up with the tri community thru it, even more than just my individual training. I hope to maybe have some time over Thanksgiving to finish posting the Beijing Olympics stories and pictures, as well as the Chicago Triathlon - but then again I still have videos from July that I haven’t finished.
I do get emails (hector “@” iwilltri,com) so if there is something you are particularly interested in please let me know and I will do my best to get back to you.
