I went to see Dennis's new baby. She's so cute. Look what he gave me. WOW. Now to many this is nothing more than a visor with words.

To me, well, it's more than that.

When I did IM Wisconsin Doug bought the group hats. For me, it was the glue that bonded us together. Well, I've just been glued, again.

I'll be honest, I have been leaning towards not doing the race. I guess my actions have been speaking louder than my thoughts because I've been training. Training like I'm gonna do it. Just not training with the intestity that I like to put into my workouts.

I'm scared. I have one heart. If I push myself to hard, the way I like to, well .... I know this thyroid thing is gonna pass, and the road to recovery is just a few short weeks away.

So, I'm taking things as slow as I can with the final goal - to be at the start line in Kentucky on race day.

Part of me thinks, I won't be doing my best but that's rubbish. Please remind me that I said that because on August 30th, in that moment, I will give it my all, the all that I have. And at the finish line I will see my friend Dennis and Caroline and anyone else who decides to stay up because it will be late. But I will finish in 17 hours.

Hey Dennis, this doesn't get you off the hook. I will pass you in an Ironman. The day will come when you either won't pass me on the bike or I will catch you on the run. Ah, I'm smiling just thinking about it. :)

You know to catch up to me you might have to do 1 or 2 more IM with me. Look forward to getting passed it one day, one day!!

You know you will give it to your best effort at IMKY. Show up, have fun, kick butt, an we will all take a pic at the end together with our hats. Can't beat that.
