Lights Out

Well, I keep meaning to post here but having trouble putting pen to paper lately. I've been thinking it's probably a good idea to formally shut this down rather then fade away. So I'm pulling the trigger...*for now*

I couldn't leave without thanking all those that took the time to land here for a visit though. I'm sure reading my blog was a chore, more often then not, but I truly appreciate all the comments here and those that hit me privately. All part of the most excellent journey over the last two years.

So there you have it...Focus on the positive, eat organic, keep the rubber side down, support your local farmers, never give up, enjoy the journey, count your blessings and all that other good stuff. Here's to keeping it real and the awesome connections along the way. *smile*

I'll catch you on the other side!

It has been great peaking in on your training and racing these last couple of years. You have definitely inspired, Iron Mike.

If you find yourself in SoCal in need of a "slow" run drop me a note.

Don't be so hasty! Though I respect your decision, coming from personal experience, I just had 2 month triathlon 'purge' and now that I'm slowly reintegrating training back in my life, the ol blog is now back up and running too.
Of course it took a beating during my hiatus, but I also came to realize just how much friends and family rely on it. Plus I also find it motivational tool - for me, if you can believe that. :)

Though I've not posted in a long while, just wanted to let you know that I've followed your ups and downs and would be saddened to see you go.

No matter what - all the best.

Mike - say it isn't so. If and when you do come back - do it in a big way.

Mike, It goes around... I'm digging through it myself, these days.

I'd like you to know that you still provide a lot of inspiration to me, whether it be when I'm trying not to drown in the SF Bay or climbing a steep hill on my bike or remembering the days when running was a little easier...

I wish you all the best - and if I am ever in Portland, I hope to run into you!

Thanks for all your tips and sharing experiences..and your wetsuit.

If I am ever in your neighbour, I will give you a shout :).

Take care.
