HFP Man – Top 10 Things I’m Thankful For

FIT-FamilyMy mother always said you need to appreciate everyday and that as we age time goes by so quickly. Of course when you’re 8 years old and it’s still 28 days before Christmas you find that hard to believe as you wish for the days to go by even faster. Now that I’m in my mid-40’s with 3 kids going in many different directions every day, I too can attest to how fast time goes by and even covet that feeling I had when I was 8 when the days seemingly drug by so slowly.

This time of year is officially the “off-season” for multisport racing but what does that really mean for most of us? All of us have very busy lives and to say any season of our life is “off” is not even close to reality. Currently, the “off-season” for the Kurek’s involves homeschooling our 2 boys, coaching our 13 year olds basketball team, volunteering at our 8 year olds wrestling practices and shuttling our daugher to both basketball and AWANA’s! Throw in a mandatory mid-week date night so Jennifer and I can talk for more than 5 minutes without getting interrupted and our “off-season” looks like just about everybody elses!

I was challenged by my pastor on Sunday to look at ALL of the above much differently. Sure it’s easy to look at being crazy busy as a negative, especially when you miss how many workouts? Kidding…a little. My pastor challenged us all to have a grateful heart for the things you’ve been blessed with. I’ve certainly been blessed with so much. I came into church on Sunday with a business burden that was consuming my thoughts and was certainly not in a grateful frame of mind. However, after hearing my pastors encouraging words I left feeling “grateful” and also knowing I wanted to share this with my blog readers.

So without further ado “HFP Man’s Top 10 Things I’m Thankful For”:
#10 – “Currently” being injury free!!!
#9 – The incredible customers of HFP Racing…what a great demographic to be surrounded by each and every race weekend.
#8 – My morning cup of coffee and the 30 minutes of calm before my day starts
#7 – Random texts from buddies that I no longer see on a regular basis but their encouraging words, out of the blue, come at seemingly the right time when I need them.
#6 – My longtime teammates on Team HFP Mark Lemmon, Curt Haywood and Todd Ricketts that have been my sounding boards for almost every major race related decision I’ve made over the last 2 decades. Thanks for your honesty!
#5 – Living the life of Riley at the helm of HFP Racing for over 25 years
#4 – Long Slow Distance runs at the Denison Bio Reserve next to my home
#3 – That I still have passion for racing after 28 years…looking forward to the 2015 season.
#2 – A supportive family that “understands” my need for a daily training fix…really I can quit anytime I just chose not to 😉
#1 – Living the dream! Bring it!

Have a great Thanksgiving!

DCIM100GOPRO“We’ve been searching for years for the perfect venue for a fall version of the American Triple-T and we’ve finally found that venue. The Salt Fork region offers everything that the American Triple-T brand is all about. A spectacular intimate setting, challenging terrain and first class accommodations in close proximity to the race site is the formula that has attracted participants from 50 states and 6 continents to our 13th annual spring event. The American Triple-T at Salt Fork offers participants the same formula that our spring event is known for.”

What IS the American Triple-T at Salt Fork? The event is so much more than your typical “triathlon weekend” — it’s a triathlon achievement of epic proportions for all who partake. It is 3 consecutive days of racing, gelling together 4 races covering a total of more than 140 miles for the weekend. You will find yourself swimming in the chilly Salt Fork Lake, riding some of the most technically challenging hills in Southeastern Ohio, and finishing with runs along the trail systems climbing and descending those same hillsides.

The American Triple-T at Salt Fork is not for the weak or faint of spirit. It will humble many triathletes who don’t take it seriously, and it will validate a host of others who will test their “tri-mettle” at the American Triple-T. Athletes from 30+ states and 4 countries will seek the privilege of earning their American Triple-T Salt Fork finisher t-shirt & medal. Competitors, volunteers and spectators a will come away with a new appreciation of the sport and of the athletes who train and tame mind and body to complete this legendary event.

Registration and lodging opens today at Noon EST. We anticipate the cabins and hotel rooms to book quickly. Don’t miss out on this fantastic racing opportunity that only the American Triple-T can provide. Go to http://www.AmericanTriple-T.com for all the details.
