    #1 Truth, @John Valledor - 2 months into my search for the next gig...might be focusing on full time consulting if I don't find what fits! These guys keep my feet on the path (literally).

    The more you sweat with friends, the more they'll stick by you in trying times.

    One of the reasons I love triathlon is that there is no guarantee of a perfect event...something always happens - could be rain, heat, cold, mechanical, illness, fitness...accidents! You never know...but you HOPE you are ready to handle whatever comes at you...and there is always the possibility of perfect! Today was a rough one for me - lungful of water...a bit of panic...and too long in the water thrashing about. But I didn't quit...made it to the bike (spare wheels because aero wheels flatted the night before!) - handled...and then the run - wicked heat, 90% humidity...so I adjusted. Handled. Resulted in my WORST International time EVER...but I learned a ton about what I need to work on before #IM703Mimami. Jill had a GREAT day...and so that is worth a toast and encouragement for a next great event! Always improving! Michael Dowling

    #4 That's great to know about the river @Michael Dowling! Wind, I think he is used to because he's also training for Xterra right now too in Colorado. How exciting about Miami, sounds like it's going to be a great race. Hang on to that motivation, I know you will!!!

    #3 @Lisa Gallagher - Jillie and I did Georgia in 2014...it a great race and your son will LOVE the river swim. It'll be his fastest swim time. It's a fast course but the bike can be hell if there is wind. IM703Miami is Oct 23! We have the Chicago Tri (biggest in the world) on August 28)...it's a great event with HUGE numbers of participants. Yep...lots of motivation!

    #2 Michael, I live in Chester (next to Derry), going kayaking in a few at Pawtuckaway State Park. I love the White Mountains of our State. Ran marathons, now training to run the "Reach the Beach." 24-hour, mostly downhill race, and 210 miles. Phew, forming a team of 12 to each eat the 210 mile course is a challenge, but worth the effort with a finish on the Atlantic coast. Keep leading your cool team of runners.
