That's true, it probably won't be an accurate reflection in wider terms, but it did help make my point that I wasn't elite. It seems like you just took an unprovoked jab at American athletes, did I read that wrong?
Yes, I'm elite. But then I woke up. I used to place about top 30% of my age group.
When I was training in triathlon, my life felt balanced. I'd like that back. But you make a very valid point. I guess I'll just go where fate takes me. This Sunday I'm going back to the park where it all started to do some sprint distance training we'll see how it feels.
I see. You all have been very helpful. I appreciate criticism when it's constructive and this was certainly constructive. This site is a learning experience for me. You see, I'm usually a technical guy that writes code and administers web servers. But there's a saying that got my attention, it's "You can either build your own dream or someone will pay you to build theirs." I've been building other's dreams and I'd like to build my own dream. If it involves triathlon, that's even better!
@KittenKat: I'm not sure what gave me the idea. I'm trying to find motivation for myself in triathlon. I completed a 140.6 a couple of years ago and I'm having a hard time getting back into it. The Ironman was my goal and now that I did it, motivation is hard to find. Maybe if I don't train so hard and focus on having fun with it, I'll find it easier to maintain consistency in training. So this website will keep triathlon in the front of my mind as I work on it.
So once again, thank you all for not ganging up on me and giving me constructive criticism that I could really use. You all are awesome!
Alright, thanks. I guess I'll google for some other ways to spread the word. I think for a triathlon in September, I'm gonna wear some outragous costume with the URL on it. I guess I should delete this thread but I don't see where to do that. I don't think I'll go so far as to report myself to the moderator by clicking the "Report to Moderator" link.
