If someone were to ask my what my proudest moment in my career has been, surprisingly it wouldn't be one of the 5 Ironman titles I've won (don't get me wrong, those are all special for a variety of reasons).
I am afraid my South African dreams will have to be put on hold for a while as I have had to make the difficult decision to not start the race tomorrow. This comes as a big disappointment, as I was so looking forward to a competitive race on a challenging course.
I just returned home - okay, I am not home yet, we had a week of R&R in Mexico to help my dad celebrate turning 70, first! Happy birthday, dad! - from my second year at the QT2 systems pro camp in Clermont, Florida.
