My rivalry with Eric "Byrnes" on...

Get it? Burns on! Ok, that was pretty weak. Moving on...

A couple of days ago, I opened up my email to find this little gem:

Now, he didn't come right out and say it, but I'm pretty sure Mr. Byrnes is behind this. He is obviously paying the folks at Active to right an article in his favor. Why would he do this? Simple. He is still devastated from how close I came to finishing within 45 minutes of him. To put things more clearly, this is how Ryan at Active describes it:

Ryan, I couldn't have said it better myself! Ha! 

So be on the lookout for an article about Eric Byrnes doing Ironman Arizona back in 2011. I'm fully expecting that there will be a personal challenge of my manhood in the article. And it will probably be hidden so well that only I can decipher it! Well played Byrnsie, well played.

My water-proof goods from X-1!

The couple of weeks ago, Sherry accepted to be a part of Team X-1. And as I said, this company makes waterproof cases for smartphones and MP3 players. Well, I received my first order of goods to start using!

In the picture is a waterproof case for my iPhone and a waterproof case for an iPod shuffle. I'm very excited to start using these products as swimming something I usually dread because it is usually very boring!

Thanks again to X-1 for allowing me to be on this team, and I can't wait to use these products and provide some feedback!

Let the training begin!

This is actually a few days late, as I have been pretty busy. But IMAZ training has begun! And when though I am posting this a little late, my training actually started on Monday...with a rest day! Booyah!

I have decided that I am not going to post my weekly training plan this time around. I decided this for a few reasons. First, I am predicting that I won't have the spare time each week to right a blog about my weekly plan. Secondly, and probably most importantly, I'm pretty sure most of you don't care to read what I am doing each and every week. If you do, then buy a copy of this book:

And with the start of my training, it only means one thing...IMAZ is only 24 weeks away! Yikes!
