Moving on from the multi sport lifestyle

As I hit the 2.5 mile marker on my usual thurs AM run, I
pondered what the heck I was doing out on a trail in near pitch black,
really dark conditions. Then it hit me. I felt like Forrest Grump, way out
in the desert where he suddenly stopped and said, "I'm Done." I don't
like getting up early. I never did! And enough is enough with it.

Finally I can start sleeping in. Don't get me wrong; triathlon as been a great
opportunity. I have gotten into the best shape of my life, but doing this stuff
over and over again takes its toll. I am mentally fried from it all. From
looking over my logs the past two years, I have racked up a ton of miles and
success in the SBR world, but the mental part has won. I am done for!

Just as I bought my last bike, I knew something was up. I wasn't feeling "it"
or the "joy" of the sport anymore. I hope that you all will stay with it and
keep putting those numbers up! This is a great sport and I hope that
everyone of you keeps hitting some new PR's! I will still be following you!
