Happy Birthday

Today I am 34... for some reason disappointment has set in. I thought I would be a millionaire by now... weird that I’m not. I was certain by now I would be, 100% certain.

I’ve worked hard, I guess not hard enough.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life....I hope. Things are going to fall in place, they have to. The Tri and Give a Dam project has started and I have no clue how I am going to get through the project and make it happen. I have contemplated gambling full time, but I’m not that good and there are no casino’s here in Utah. In my ideal world a rich dude or company will step in, see the big picture and marketability of my project and fund it. A few weeks ago I completed the first of 20 half Ironman races.... felt good felt strong.

Today was good spent the time with my family. Went to bootcamp and got my but kicked with coach Keena. I pushed harder than I usually do knowing this would be my last good hard book camp for a while. I do not race this weekend so I can be sore. After boot camp I went to Nichole Beckstead’s place to ride on her compu trainer. I wanted to ride the New Orleans bike course one time before I head there on the 18th for the 2nd of 20 70.3 races. New Orleans may be my best shot to qualify for the 0.3 world championships later this year. Biked hard and LOVED the compu trainer- I need them to sponsor me. To know what my power is, my cadence, heart rate and many other things was just awesome. I biked harder than I should have and I know I am going to be sore.

Went home to a wonderful surprise.... Begle pizzas made by my kids. “Happy Birthday to you” was sung to me as I entered the house.... moments like these make sleepless nights worth it. After lunch I too the kids over to the local pool for a fun swim on the slide and the lazy river. Mom stayed home with the really little ones and napped. Sunny is pretty tired with her current weight loss competition coming to a close.

Dinner was roast and potatoes. My favorite! We did a few small gifts and enjoyed a home made blue berry pie. Thanks family, what a great day.
