Quite the production

Getting into the detailed planning for the Cozumel trip. Hotel, plane, bike packing and shipping, transportation, phone service, etc. ... lots of things to take care of. Oh, and I guess I should train some, too :) Seriously, flying internationally for a triathlon adds a lot of tasks to the plate! I just keep focused on that goal of crossing the finish line, and then spending the rest of the week with my family enjoying fun, relaxation, and lots and lots of food. I wonder how much weight I can gain in a week?

At the finish line of Ironman Cozumel it will have been close to 400,000 yards of swimming, 5700 miles of biking, and 15oo miles of running this year - and time to blow off some steam and have a good time. A little over a month from when I get back home, I'll be on my trip to Haiti to visit the kids and the friends that I've made in the years past. Pretty hectic, but life just keeps flying by, so you have to treasure every moment that you get to break out of the ordinary, right?
