And so the journey begins

I’ve been promising two close friends of mine that I would get this blog going as of January 1st. So obviously my first hurdle to deal with is procrastination. However, rather than dwell on my two month delay, I’m going to look at this as my first accomplishment.

This is my first entry and I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m going to be very candid about my day to day battles with closet skeletons, demons, monkeys on my back and the like in order for me to train and finish an IronMan race. This is gonna be pretty damn personal. I have to be brutally honest with everyone to keep honest with myself. There are some close to me and who I work with that I have chosen not to tell about this blog because, really, I’m not ready for them to know so much about me.

But I am ready to share my journey with strangers and friends who I know will understand – and then I’ll venture out from there to those I’ve been holding back from if I get the right support and feedback.

I repeat, I’ll be honest. If I have a bad day where I’m too lazy to get off the couch to work out or I drank too much wine or lost my temper, I will say so. This blog will be cathartic for me but I’m hoping that sharing my accomplishments and set backs will encourage others to follow a dream and become a better person because of it.

I will introduce you to my demons once I set up the page and discuss how I’m battling them day to day. I will tell you about my mini goals in triathlon and my dissappointments and how they make me feel. I’ll let you know who and what inspire me or even the little moments in life that I’ve learned to appreciate. I’m not going to preach. I want to be honest about my journey to becoming an IronMan finisher and if you learn something from my mistakes and accomplishments, great. I just want to keep humble about it and not sound like everyone should be an IronMan and drinking is evil, blah blah blah.

Okay, ready? Here we go!
