it starts over

here's the new package. Nothing fancy, just a bit of cosmetics.
The Budapest race is over, so I thought I'd have another title and what first sprang to mind was the racing thing. Then I kept thinking and I wondered if there's any difference between "a season of racing" and "a season of participating in races"
My take is that there is a difference in how one frames oneself for for a race where we are just taking part or for another one where we're racing. That's what the whole "A" race theory may actually anchor. I don't know. I know I want to do some races, and hopefully do well in them. As the saying goes, you're only as good as your last race, so I'll try to be as good.
So, welcome to the first re-incarnation of the blog, there may be more, there may be not. The person behind the screen is the same but different, as I guess many of you out there are after each season. The content will be more of the same, with a bit more social and getting to know mates from the NZ tri world. And summer is good to be out with the camera, so I'll make sure I get some pics as well.

Today was the first day of the comeback, with light running only on the schedule. It was also the last day at the carpark space we use in the winter time. Spring is here and that means back to the grass track in the park. and good times doing conditioning work

  1. Welcome back! And I am definitely someone who participates in a season of races rather than racing for a season.

  2. I would have gone with waffle eater, but that's just me.

  3. So odd when I read "spring is here" as I get ready to put the shovels for snow in the garage!

  4. I'm pleased you have decided to continue. I find the blog inspiring and a great source of training tips and thoughts. Sam

  5. guess it my turn to do some cold runs and shovel snow! As always look forward to inspirational posts and great ball busting training tips and tools! somewhere within your shared training I will become a runner, keep on sharing!
