An Epic Day

What An Epic Day!

Holy cow you guys! What a morning! Can’t wait to tell you. When I get settled in at work I may send you a few texts about this crazy morning. Trust me, you’re gonna like it. And Coach like you’ve always said this stuff should be on the internet somewhere.

Several Short Stories Inbound...

Swam at 0500, crushed 1,850 meters straight, no rest in approx 35 minutes. Despise the Friday’s kids go to moms, like today, sucks. Fishing usually helps me to gather myself, get re-centered, focus.
