2007: Well...overall its been a good year. I think the struggles were equal to the Highlights.

  • Lost over 50 lbs
  • learned to swim
  • 2 (count'em) 2 triathlons completed
  • Became friends with many in tri-blog land (especially Tea and Duane)
  • Over 80 days of abstinence from compulsive overeating
  • sobriety....yep folks no more booze either
  • sanity...yes folks I feel better than i have in a long long time....
  • Divorce after 6 years of marriage
  • selling house
  • hit my bottom....(atlthough i think its the best thing that happened to me)
  • injuries (shoulder/knee/back) seems neverending....
This year i would like to keep taking life 1 day at a time. I would love to be able to compete again this summer but we will see what life brings. I have to give other isssues a higher priority for now. This whole divorce thing is just temporary and the selling the house thing will pass too.

I continue to work on ME. I am building a better Bob.

Like the 6 million dollar man...i am going to be better, stronger, and faster:)
