some sound advice

I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by greatness. I live in the mecca of fitness and greatness... paradise... where it is 80 degrees in the winter and I can train play outside year round. We truly do live in an amazing place... I suppose it almost makes it worth the exhorbitant amount of property taxes that I pay.

I have many people in my life who I look up to. These people range from athletes, parents, scholars, etc... but lately, in my quest for answers, I've come to get some great advice from a variety of wonderful people.

One of my favorite statements, that I've really taken to heart is this:

"You don't want to haev regrets, you don't want to do everything half assed... as your kids get older you will have more time - but don't waste that time now - they are only this age once and that you can never get back. Triathlon is NOT going anywhere." -- so thank you!! I needed to hear this. Actually, this was an echo of something I was told during my ride on Saturday by yet another person I admire...

This really does answer a lot of my questions and reaffirms what I've been feeling lately... that it's truly time to reprioritize and enjoy the kiddos while they're still young enough to actually want to spend time with me.

I really appreciate the love and support from all of you.
