2010: Woods

The Woods is a place of reflection for me. Since my youth, I've spent a lot of time trodding along with my dad, an avid hunter, taking in the beauty of nature. I really enjoy it. Deer hunting season is about to begin next weekend and I can't wait. Dad was out early one morning this week about to chop wood and captured a picture of this buck.

For the first time in a long time, my triathlon plans feel muddled. Usually by now I have next year's training schedule in rough draft form plus a tentative racing schedule. Right now I know I'm racing American Triple T and Ironman Hawaii. One is in May, the other in October. That's quite a time spread. Given that I want a break from Ironman, I want to spend 2011 doing sprints and olympics. But you'd hardly guess that by my race commitments.

The where, when, and how of 2011 triathlon (and otherwise) need some reflection.

I have faith the Woods will sort things out.
