Comment of the week
Your timing is impeccable. This week the performance period (week 14) of training for IRON MAN CDA began. Saturday ended with me on the back of an ambulance after a long day of cycling / running. I passed out, hit the flagstone with my head, and was cold for a few minutes. Several tests show that I have low blood pressure after strenuous exercise. I had my pity party and am now looking for my next adventure. I have several IMs and I am passionate about triathlon. The outward expansion of the brain with no restricting masseter muscles attached to the sagittal ridges made us what we are today. “
– I’m sorry to hear that Lima whiskey. All the best.
