Back from Houston, Back to Training

Yesterday afternoon I left Dallas to head to Houston to visit my cousin that I have not seen in quite some time.  Left here around 11am and got to the hotel close to 3pm but it would have been sooner if Houston didn't have a Clay Road and a Clay Street.  I wound up going downtown instead of to the outskirts.  Once I was there I kicked back, showered and waited for Robbie to get back from work.

Once he was there we decided to grab some steaks and went to Morton's.  I can't recall the last time I had a steak or red-meat other then a hamburger to be honest.  The steak tasted great but it was the mushrooms and asparagus that won me over.  After that we headed to the Flying Saucer and had a great time catching up.  I love to hear stories about his kids and what they are doing and really hearing about how much they are growing up.  That is what I miss the most about NY.

Got up this morning to head back to Big D and on the way got a phone call regarding my resume.  That lifted my spirits, and Karen also got a call regarding hers.  Now, regardless if nothing happens at all life is already looking up.

I am going to get ready now to head to the gym to get some swimming and running in.  The swim should take about an hour while the run is 30 mintues.  After that I may shoot up to grab my race packet.  Not sure though as I also want to be home to see my step-son.  I missed him and Karen while out of town.

Karen has been such a bright spot in my life and I honestly don't know what I would do without her she means that much.

I can honestly say that no matter how tired I am right now I am looking forward to the training.  Eating the big steak last night and quite the big breakfast this morning has me ready to get back to working out and sweating.  The Pioneer race is this weekend and I want to make sure that I'm in top shape for it.
More Good News:
My blog was published on which should help it get some more exposure.

The link to the blog is right here although I need to inform them that Baha is my last name and not Baja California.  No worries though as it is great to get the exposure to begin with.

Off to get my training in, but before I go I saw this on the road from Houston today and thought it was perfect:

The Road to Success is filled with a lot of potholes.

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
