Being a solo Dad for a week while my wife was on a business trip and while I was preparing for an Ironman.

It's hard choice to make in our sport between Kona and the Olympics, but I'd have to go with the Games. One shot in 4 years was pretty cool to nail.

I get up 3 hours before, have a coffee and some oats, have a stretch and try not to freak out.

3. Train the way you plan to race.

The idea of being able to improve after all these years. Going to bed better than when I woke up.
