New to the blogging world but thought it would help clear my head. Officially in Week 2 of my Ironman Texas preparation. Volume and intensity are low and I'm getting back into the swing of things. It is hard to hold back at this point when I have such high goals for the year. I feel like it is an expectation of family and friends that I qualify for Kona again. It is an expectation I have for myself. I have been blessed to have had safe training and racing for 2 years and am praying for more of the same for 2013.
