Back and Better than ever...


2013 has started and the first thing we did was to go on vacation away from the cold and snow...
I have to admit that running by the ocean, the sandy beaches, and the palm trees was very pleasant.  Not to mention the chance to spend extended quality time with my side of the family.  I very much enjoyed all of it.

But now we are back and 2013's routine is really getting under way.

Many challenges await this year and I am very excited to take on all of them the only way I know how... head on.
But before I get warmed up to take on 2013 I like to take a look what I was able to do in 2012.
I am very lucky to have had the chance to do as much as I did and to race as much as I did.
For me the highlight of the year was to compete in the Rev3 Half-Iron Distance Triathlon in Cedar Point and come within minutes of my PR at that distance.  I was very pleased with the fact that I was able to string together a half-marathon consistently after the previous 56 Miles.  I've always had trouble with second half of the run in this long type of races.
But all together I am VERY GRATEFUL to be out there when I can and keep taking the CLOT BUSTER - STOP THE CLOT polka-dots for all to see and in the very least get people thinking and learning about blood clots and blood clotting disorders.
Here are my totals for SWIMMING, BIKING, and RUNNING in 2012.  At the end of each year I look at this numbers and I am blown away... to me it is simply impressive.
SWIM = 36.6 Miles
BIKE = 2,292 Miles
RUN = 765 Miles
What were your numbers for 2012? Keep track of them because looking at the them at the end makes you feel accomplished.
How will the 2013 numbers turn out? I don't have any idea but you can be sure that I will be tracking it all to look back on it and get inspired once more to take on the next year.
Thanks for reading,
The Clot Buster
