Getting my Learn on

I'm heading to Orlando, FL today to attend a coaching clinic being put on by Hector Torres. Now I met him at the Power training clinic back in Philly in Nov of 09. I remember not really liking the guy, can't remember why... but I'm entering this clinic with a very open mind! Even if you don't like a guy or the way he might coach doesn't mean that he isn't doing something right and there can be gems in this clinic I can take away. So trying to put past judgments behind me and come into this clinic fresh and ready to learn!

I do hope there are some other insightful coaches there that I can dine with and actually discuss topics. However in most cases you get a group of Triathlete's or Tri Coaches together it just becomes a dick swinging contest of who's doing everything right and how much faster their athletes are than yours... or at least that's the impression I get because those guys overpower the conversation while the others, as myself, would like to actually learn and evolve as coaches and not stay narrow minded in thinking you're always right... Damnit there I go again being close minded and not giving folks a chance!

Ok, time to pack and begin this road trip! Here's to open minds, great discussions, and a few good local drafts... Cheers!!!

PS: Happy Veterans day and thank you to all of our Vets and Active Military members for all that you've done and continue to do! I would not be able to chase my dream if you didn't give such great sacrifices for our freedom.

Random stuff

So unfortunately I still haven't done the "Taking the Plunge" or whatever I want to title it blog. It is coming however!

In other news, I'm taking Leah to go watch The Gay Blades tonight... an oddly named band from NYC which should be an interesting show to say the least.

Besides that I really want to go to The Vortex (Little 5 in ATL) and eat this...

Twice as big as the Coronary Bypass! Topped with
two fried eggs, six slices of American cheese, and
eight slices of bacon, all served between the two
grilled cheese sandwiches that we use in place of
the regular hamburger buns. 14.95

New goal

My new goal is to write a blog at least once a week, most likely on Thursday's unless another topic comes up and needs to be addressed. If there is a topic you'd like to see covered or comments/suggestions then please let me know and I'd be happy to look into it for you!

So yeah... new blog... tomorrow (like a profess procrastinator)

Well here goes nothing

I have no real idea what I plan on accomplishing by creating this blog... maybe it'll help me get some things off my chest... but hopefully I'll be able to keep it functional and somewhat professional with product reviews and updates on how training is going and what methods I am using, without giving away all the secrets that is!
