What do humans do when times get tough?
They believe, they believe that they are strong enough to make it through their gauntlet. This analogy is why I race Ironmans. I want to test belief. I want to know that when the conversation, or should i say argument, between the mind and the body-that the mind will dominate. Ultimately, this is what endurance racing is about. Yes, I train my body to to be able to go as fast and far as possible, but I will still need my mind to persevere next Saturday. I need it to push me, to find an area so deep within and to expose a part of me I have never known. I am prepared to do this and the real question is whether I have the courage and the true grit to preserve. Yesterday, when I arrived on the island, and did my first run. I realized the energy of the island will help me do this. It is an amazing place that seems to contain hidden powers. I know I will have to harness this energy when I am on the marathon and my body is telling me to stop, to rest. However if I want to reach my dreams and be the man I want to be, then I have to dig deep. I can do it!
My blog is a collection of topics including training, nutrition, sponsorships, and becoming the best man I can be. In addition, I write about my spiritual realizations that are intrinsic to the sport of triathlon.
