Making a Living at Triathlon…

First of all, let me just say that it’s been too long in between posts. Wow! The last time I had enough time to actually sit and type about my triathlon adventures was last September. During the past several months I have had several people encourage me to update my blog but I simply have been too busy with family, life, work and training for Ironman Lake Placid. The problem is that my time was not always spent on the above things in the order I listed them. As much as I have tried to juggle many things, I have at times done each one of them poorly. The opposite is true as I have also been an All-Star at times too. 

The past ten months have been a whirlwind. If there has been one constant it is the support I have received in my business from the triathlon community. It has been unbelievable. I would hate to see my books if I were to remove the jobs I did for people that I compete and train with and have come to know through triathlon. The “guys” that work for me always chuckle when we show up to the next project and there is one of those funny looking bikes in the garage and stickers on the vehicles that say 140.6, 70.3, 26.2, 13.1, etc. You know what I’m talking about! They always rib me about my training but they are all very in tune with the fact the much of our business is generated by the folks I spend time with on the weekends.

So, as I kick start this blog again, fresh off a weekend at Ironman Lake Placid, I thought it was important to take a minute and thank all of you that have helped me maintain a strong business in a tough economy. I appreciate the business and the confidence you have shown in me. I like to think that I’ve earned it and will continue to strengthen these relationships over the coming years. Thanks again.

My next post will be the Ironman Lake Placid Race Report. BUT FIRST I have a project to quote. Funny thing, it’s for a couple of Triathletes.

Stay tuned….
