It is time.

My mind is ready for the "not season" to be over but the jury is still out on my body. Today, though, two things of note happened:
  1. I registered for my first event of 2011 The St Anthony's Olympic Triathlon in St. Petersburg, FL on May 1. I was able to register early since I deferred out of the 2010 edition of this race due to injuries. I'm in a new age group so there will be a new bunch of fat geezers to beat me.
  2. I officially started back up training with my coach, Bike Mike.

I still have a lot of aches and pains but I'm going to embrace what I can do, not what I can't. My weight loss focus was lost when I went to Asia but I'm back on that bandwagon. My physical limitations might mean cutting back a bit on the number of events but my plan is to pick a big event and go for it. I may fall short but the journey is the destination.

Game on.

focussing on what you CAN do will get you pretty far. I learned that myself this summer. :-)
