After a month of some quiet time I have made a decision regarding my current Ironman plans. Seeing an 11 year old boy and an 8 year old girl growing up at the speed of light, I have decided to devote 100% of my time to them.

Tianari loves acting and scrap booking! I laugh and enjoy it with her mom and her, but I cannot contribute much more than giving my full support to her and the things she loves. I am a boy and I know nothing about acting apart from what I see in movies!! She has me always and I am there for her.

Wessel has a bright future in the sporting world and I want to take the steps with him because this is what I can relate to. After long rides on Saturdays I am too tired to go ride with him and this made him neglecting his training because of dad not being there. It isn't safe for him to cycle alone and should something happen to him I won't be able to forgive myself.

I will swim, cycle and run every meter with him. I am looking forward to it and in a few years time I can do Ironman 45-49 age group, who knows?

I am breaking the news to him soon and then the road begins...look out for the Weasel...he is strong, he is fast and he wont give up! Beware young world out there! The champ is focused now.

Till next time, be strong and live EXTRA hard.
