Congratulations, this email serves as official confirmation of registration for the LA Marathon taking place March 17, 2013.
I had a pretty good 2012. Actually, a really good 2012, at least from an athletic perspective:
- Two Ironman finishes, including the infamous 2012 IM St. George
- 3-minute Olympic-distance PR of 2:15:01 at Malibu
- 22-minute Ironman PR of 10:04:24
- Best age group placings ever at Ironman events: 10th at St. George, 7th at Hawaii 70.3, 3rd at Arizona
- Qualified for 2013 Kona at Arizona
- All at age 50 🙂
Ok, turning 50 definitely helped with the placings and the Kona slot, but the rest is pretty unusual, particularly because I’m not a newbie to the sport — I did my first tri in 1983 and have done more than 100, many of which you can’t even find on Athlinks because they predate the WWW (“that’s right, sonny, back in my day we got our race results on paper, mailed weeks or months after the event, and we liked it

do you ever ‘go deaf’ during workouts? this happens to me during my killer FASTrength workouts with coaches mike & angie.
typically, i’m in some type of morphed plank where i’m dragging my legs behind me while walking my arms the length of the gym. or, i’m doing something that my body is in total shock that i’m even ATTEMPTING.
with this loss of hearing, i often close my eyes and my vision is blurred. this is when coach mike tells me to open my eyes and be present with him. (and, this is when i usually hate him!)
but, i must admit…
i don’t go ENTIRELY deaf. i just feel this pressure in my cranium, particularly close to my ears. but, still, it’s an odd feeling. and, i wonder if i’m about to pass out as i that blurred vision turns into dizziness.
as i’ve been working hard during my one-on-one PT and group sessions since the beginning of november, these moments have become shorter. and, i’d attribute that to commitment and progress.
do you have these moments? have you had these moments? do you remotely want to find out what these moments are if you haven’t had these moments?
