And then, goals change.

2020 was supposed to be my return to the land of athletic misadventures, my comeback year if you will. I had grand plans culminating with racing Ironman North Carolina 70.3 in October. Alas, due to progress going slower than planned in both the training and body composition fronts, I was skeptical that I would be prepared for this event. Mix in the risk of the event not even happening due to COVID-19, I felt that my plan was off the rails.

I saw on one of the many Facebook groups that I subscribe to that some athletes were asking for deferrals until 2021 and some, but not all, were being granted. So I gave it a shot and Ironman responded that I could defer. So I did.

So the 2021 goal is now:

  • Beaverdam Olumpic Triathlon in April 2021
  • If my training is going phenomenal, Ironman Eagleman 70.3 in June. The current odds are 1:4 against.
  • Outer Banks Olympic Triathlon in September 2021.
  • Ironman North Carolina 70.3 in October 2021.
The dates are all up the air as is everything these days.

Game on.
