2014 — a year of new beginnings for me. My resolution is to race the way I know how to race.

No more pulling on the lane rope when swimming backstroke.
Learn to glue my own tubulars!
I want to spend more quality time with my wife and son. Between training, racing, Picky Bars and writing, our lives are bonkers. I think I do a decent job, but I’d like to carve out more time to push it all aside and just hang out with my family.
To read at least 10 minutes a day. And in 2014 to find out what the Fox really says!
