I am a rookie.

I always kind of liked the idea of being a rookie. Like a rookie cop or a rookie baseball player. The word conjures a vision of a young newbie, with the basic, essential training and abilities to start, but still a lot to learn. Endless possibilities, hope for something great, but no guarantee. Promise in a pair of pants.

So it is with excitement and anticipation I bring you news. I am one of two "Iron Rookies", selected at random, to be followed by TriBoomer on his weekly podcast The Stay Tuned Report. You can listen to the introduction on podcast #22. You'll also get to cyber-meet the Running Jayhawk, the other selectee.

I think this will add another aspect to my iron journey, another opportunity to take time out to look at how I am doing, how this affects the people around me, to share with others this very positive experience, and to perhaps make a positive impact on someone I wouldnt have normally come into contact with.

Thanks, TriBoomer, for this opportunity. Good luck, Running Jayhawk! I am looking forward to sharing this amazing experience.

You still sound super fast to me! :)

After Lake Placid you'll have to give me all sorts of brilliant pearls of wisdom.

Keep up the hard work!
