First, allow me to apologize to anyone who spent an hour last Saturday listening to a radio broadcast that, in the end, did NOT include the interview of yours' truly. After learning how to record streaming audio, arranging things around the broadcast, and then taping the entire hour, it became apparent that interview will be another day. My wife pointed out that perhaps they recorded two week's worth of tape to account for the holiday weekend.
One of the recurring topics in my experiences as an endurance athlete is the "that guy" situation. As has been stated in the past, I was never really "that guy" growing up. Well, at least not in any really cool sense.
Monster Girl wandered into our bedroom around 5:15 this morning and woke me up. With one little push she managed to give my day a pretty rough start.
And just because a picture of Monster Girl must be balanced with a picture of B-Boy, another from the Oshkosh Area Kids' Triathlon. It's fitting as my son woke me up, today, as well. He was just less thorough. I never saw the alarm clock as he was roaming about.
Going into the Fall 50, I knew there would be a certain amount of pain associated with finishing. I just didn't realize the worst of it would come some five weeks after the race.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
