December 22nd is a day I’ve been waiting for for a long time. Enlightenment! Sorry, Gandhi, not that enlightenment. -Still searching. This year, December 22nd marks the day of the Winter Solstice. Cue the bells and whistles! Bring in the marching bands! Sound the trumpets! From this day forth the Northern hemisphere gains sunlight each day. To those of us who live where there’s snow falling on this very day, we rejoice. Hallelujah! A bright future is on the horizon. This is the time when we recognize the rebirth of all things. Time on the trainer is dwindling down like sand in an hourglass. Workouts grow longer, in unison with the days, and it seems that world has redeemed itsself.
The recently released 2012 KompetitiveEdge triathlon team is witness to a new beginning as well. With nearly 40 athletes, this team is AWESOME. -Insert soapbox HERE. This team is more well connected than Lego Land. More studs than the Kentucky Derby. This team puts out more watts than General Electric on a group ride. Not to mention some of the coolest cats around. As some would say, “quality human beings.” “Good people.” Congratulations to all who made the 2012 KompetitiveEdge triathlon team. I personally look forward to working with all of you, veterans and rookies.
Here’s to a successful 2012!
