It's funny how sometimes the "silver lining" to things is just a matter of perspective. After six days fighting an upper respiratory infection, I have to consider myself the lucky one. While training has been curtailed and most of my excercise has come at the business end of a snow shovel, I can at least say I was the "survivor." Everyone else in the house went down harder.
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.
