Don't Forget To Tip Your Waitresses

As many of you know, I started this blog to recount my journey from desperate dreamer to proud Ironman. And boy oh boy, it's been quite an adventure. Along the way we've had our share of laughs and tears and more than a few swear words. Throughout the months I've received tremendous support and encouragement from people all around the globe who apparently are bored enough at work to read this crap that I write. I thank you all from the very depths of my heart. So deep it practically hits my intestines.

So here I am, an Ironman. (If you haven't yet read my story about the Ironman experience, I recommend it. It's long but worth it. You'll laugh, you'll'll get indigestion. But in a good way.) And now I'm faced with the big decision of what to do with this damn blog. Truth be told, I've really learned to love writing my nonsense here. It's become a bit like a puggle, if you will. It started off kind of ugly and annoying, peeing and crapping all over my Post-Toasties, until one day I woke up and realized I had quite a bit of affection for the little bugger. And now that it's all up and grown, I've got to figure out what to do.

There are so many stories and thoughts I still want to share with you about Ironman racing and triathlon. Some pretty funny. Some maybe even a bit insightful (though it's best we not give me too much credit). On top of that, Catherine and I got slots for the New York Marathon. I don't know if we'll actually run it this year, but there is a chance that more training might be in my future, and that always makes for pretty good copy.

What this all means, I guess, is that I'll still be writing some more. Hell, now that I'm not training for an Ironman, maybe I'll even write more than I did before. Aren't you lucky? (correct answer: "yes")(other acceptable answers: "thank you sir, may I have another", "sir! yes sir!" or "fo shizzle my nizzle")

Here's the thing - I'm just trying to figure out an overall theme for this blogging nonsense. I mean, we've gotta have a theme, don't we? I can't just go all willy-nilly on yo' ass. That's not fair. So I'm thinking... trying to come up with something. In the meantime, if you've got any suggestions, please feel free to drop me an e-mail. Cause right now I ain't got no idea nohow.

I think not having a theme is the best way to go. Just life and endless possibilities.
