Greetings! Whether you are a family member, friend, or just happened to stumble upon my blog, I'd like to welcome you! Lao Tzu, a well known philosopher in ancient China said that "The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." For me, this post is the the first of what I hope will be many posts, providing some insight into the life of a second year professional triathlete racing on the ITU circuit. I invite you to come along for the journey...more to come soon!
