    #29 Hi @Praveen Raj Gullepalli, and one lucky mom too! Yes, I have to give my husband props for being understanding and I really do appreciate him! I agree, the names are fancy, aren't they? As I wrote below, we all have issues we deal with, it's how we come out in the end and manage them that matters. We can also learn from others who have similar issues, they may find ways to cope that work for us too, so sharing is a good thing. You picked up on something, my photos. I have to admit, my camera and love for taking photos takes my mind to a really great place and we have those great memories for a lifetime to keep viewing! Thanks for your kind comment :)

    #26 You were a big help @Deb Helfrich, and patient since my anxiety was evident even with my voice. I have to agree, writing about this in the sequence it began and how it ended on a very good note is very useful. It's useful because it helps to recall what works and I think, helps to lessen the anxiety knowing you accomplished something you thought would be tough to trod through.

    Great terms, "What fires together, wires together." I find that to be so true. Remembering the positive lessons and repeating them before another event of any kind can help to re-wire what misfires.

    I think the OCD that I was told I have is probably intrusive thoughts which was what I was told for years- those lead to anxiety. I'm not compulsive, so it's probably true that I'm not OCD. I think we can all be a bit OCD; life can do that to anyone ;-) Thanks for your well thought out comment and advice, very appreciated!
    Deb Helfrich
    28/09/2016 #26 Deb Helfrich
    I am so glad I was able to help, @Lisa Gallagher! I think you showed a useful part of the cycle by writing it all out afterwards, so that other people might take the same approach - it doesn't necessarily have to be published either, but the intention to make it clear enough to publish is likely important. I don't necessarily think you are writing about OCD at all. I think you are writing about certain strategies to calm your anxiety that have a chance to work.

    Going over things ahead of time is a prudent strategy that airlines and doctors and firemen all do - it is an important career skill if you learn to harness and package it. But because of the anxiety overlaying the thoughts, you forget to do a checkpoint that will allow you to signify you've done your best planning, time to move on. Doing a post-event assessment is another useful career skill and it creates the concrete thoughts that can challenge the next set of anxiety and intrusive thoughts.

    What fires together, wires together - which is not to say that there isn't a mis-wiring in the anxiety disease pathway - but you can slowly and steadily learn how to manage living with it so that you continue to be able to participate in life and show up for your loved ones.

    #16 Hi @Paul Kearley, it's nice to see you! You're so right, packing my bags and doing this has helped me to realize I'm capable of facing other fears with less anxiety now! I love life and I refuse to allow my anxiety to rule it. I never allowed it to rule but it's caused me to slow down at times. Life is too precious and I'm grateful for so much! Thanks for your kind comment.

    #15 @Dean Owen, you only sleep 4 hours? Oh wow.. I could not function. I need at least 6 hrs, 7 hours and I feel great. I have a friend like you, she only sleeps 4 hours and goes all day late into the evening. I must warn you, it's beginning to catch up with her. You could be right about the OCD thing, because as I noted above, I had a hard time accepting that since no one ever told me I had it before. I think my intrusive thoughts appear OCD like and my anxiety causes me to feel out of control, which makes me appear more controlling if that makes sense? The anxiety is real and stinks but I can power through it thanks to so many tools I've been given. I won't lie, there are days it's tough but over all, most people would never know I have it with the exception of the 'internet' now- since I made it public LOL!

    I watched Fireman Rob race in Boulder Ironman 2014. It was 95 degrees that day and he runs in full gear. The reason he does, here's a blurb, and you can read the rest of the story with the link I provide. "It goes back to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Rob had been a Firefighters for less than a year and was at work that morning. As soon as he heard the news he knew he had to go to New York. By the time he got to Ground Zero two days later, search and rescue had become search and recovery. For the next eight days, he helped comb through the rubble. Then, last year, before the 10-year anniversary of the attacks, retired California Firefighters Lorenzo Abundiz visited Verhelst's firehouse to talk about his foundation, Code 3 for a Cure, which is designed to raise money for Firefighters diagnosed with cancer."

    Maybe it's time for more bicycle awareness? I have read one too many stories, this being the most recent of a bicyclist being killed while biking. Most of the stories I read about are due to road rage and lack of respect and/or sharing the road with cyclists. Many of the roads in Colorado have bike lanes, yet cyclists are are still hit. Today's latest happened during Boulder Ironman. This person went to race and will never return home to the loving arms of their family. Their family just lost a loved one today. This truly angers me and I wish we could collectively begin a movement to bring more awareness to drivers about sharing the road with cyclists.

    #1 Hi @Robert Bacal, I understand what you are saying but my recent concerns come from many articles and stories my son has shared. Boulder and the surrounding communities are known for health and cycling. They have TONS of bicycle lanes [ separate from cars ] and I know the cyclists take their role seriously. My son has told me that there is a lot of road rage out there and many young cyclists have been killed. I realize accidents happen but many of these incidents are not accidents, they are rage related or irresponsible drivers. I'm not saying 'every' cyclist is responsible but most of them try to be VERY aware of drivers and respectful because they know they are easier targets- whether it's an accident or due to road rage and/or negligence.

    I know these kinds of cyclist fatalities are upsetting, because it would seem it should be possible to reduce the number of accidents, and I know cities are trying. And we should try, but also realize that so long as cyclists share space, there will be accidents and deaths. We've had pedestrians killed since day one of the auto. As both a cyclist and a car driver, I feel bikers need to realize the risks involved.

    #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!

    When is Ironman 70.3 in Miami @Michael Dowling? I take it your training for it? My son is doing Ironman 70.3 in Georgia Sept 27th! Tough training but I know from what my son tells me, it keeps him motivated for sure!

    #19 I think that's a great idea @Michael Hillebrand. When my son did Ironman Boulder Newton Running sponsored their team and the marketing paid off well. They were also very pro-active with the team and the Triathlon. I still see Newton Running signs at the Ironman events.

    #45 Nice, that you found a 50 mile loop @Michael Dowling! Your article was great about Ironman Boulder. A team makes all the difference! My son had an awesome team in 2014, not sure if the name of his team this year. He lives about 15 miles or so from Boulder so he had an advantage wirh elevation. Everything you wrote about, was relatable after listening to my son's stories and being there to cheer him and others in. You made great time considering you stopped in the tent, got sick etc.. Amazing time, actually. ~Swim, bike run, ya so much fun~ You've heard that song? I love it! My son did AlcaTri and put a video together with that song. Really enjoyed your blog, I will pass that on to him, thanks!

    #43 - @Lisa Gallagher - Fantastic to hear about your son! Yes, I deal with road rage here in Chicago. Jill and I have found a fantastic 50 mile loop of paved bike trails we train on for our upcoming Half Ironman in Miami #IMMiami703. Wrote this article about Ironman Boulder if you want to share with your son. http://shiftwit.com/what-ironman-boulder-taught-me-about-management-and-myself/

    Really enjoyed the interview @Michael Hillebrand did with you @Michael Dowling! I was excited to hear you are a triathlete! My son is a triathlete too and finished his first full Ironman Competition in Boulder of 2014. He is also training someone with their goal to become an Ironman (woman, in this case). Your story motivates me to push harder with my own exercise routine and possibly change it up. My son has been posting a lot of articles lately about raging drivers who have hit cyclists, or people who just don't pay attention and cyclists are being hit. Do you run into this problem when biking? Beautiful photo of you and your family!

    #33 It's not!?! I have to hit the ball like 3 times off the tee before I get one that goes straight! Looks like you have some competition, sir. My best friend and I go often. He's been known to hit it behind him, from the tee. No joke.. That's how we roll..

    A story of a man who runs marathons inspired by Rick and Dick Hoyt who did both Marathons and Ironman Competitions. Rick Hoyt is Dick's son and has cerebral palsy. Please read, this story is very inspiring by @Jeremy Weaver

    @jeremy weaver this is awesome! I can see why Rick and Dick Hoyt have inspired you and yes, I did cry. My son is an Ironman and will be competing again in July and September- his motivation, his father! My son's dad ruptured both patellar tendons and was told he'd never walk again without assistance. My son was traumatized by this but turned the trauma into something positive by beginning to run in Marathon's first, then deciding to overcome his fear of swimming in open water so he could compete in Triathlons. He runs for his dad who is walking without assistance but can't do much of what he used to, like biking for one- something the two of them shared for years. I have seen other fathers like Dick Hoyt during Ironman Boulder in 2014 running, biking and swimming with their disabled children and I watch in awe because that takes so much endurance and mental endurance as well. I'm happy you love to run and wishing you much success. This was very moving and I love when people share stories behind 'the story.' Best of luck to you in all your endeavors with being a Marathon runner! I'm posting this in the Ironman hive created by @Federico Álvarez San Martín which I co-administrate. If you know of others with stories that relate to Triathlons or Ironman Competitions please share to the Ironman (spanish hive) Would sure appreciate!! Thank you for sharing this.
