Luck can change your outcome

Day after Ironman Lake Placid in 2009
I keep on using the below picture in every single post that I've done since IMLP this year. Needless to say I've waited a long time to be able to have a photo like that and I'm pretty stoked about it. To say that I got a little lucky this year would be an intense understatement.

Luck was NOT on my side in 2009, but I feel like I caught the winning lottery ticket this year.  I'm sorry to keep blogging about it, I just can't shut up about it and stop smiling!!! It's been a hell of a way to come back from the crash and while I didn't have the race I thought I was going to, it still worked out. 

Plane ticket is booked and the acommodations are almost solidified so it's becomming all too real.  :o) I'm just hoping I don't wake up tomorrow from this huge dream...Big training block starts again today.  9 weeks until the big dance!  Cheers.

Man, that looks awful. Painful just looking at it really. I mean who chose that green paint? And craeful with that paper, you could get a nasty paper cut. Who knows, maybe an infection in that cut.

I remember that photo. Happened at the bar and not at Placid. And if you think Travis looks bad you should've seen the Paul Smiths Womens Rugby team. You really held your own buddy. And if it makes you feel any better, I thought the beard was fake too.
