I'm back in Madison where I raced my last Ironman, only this time I'm here for my family. My dad is having surgery tomorrow, a procedure called pyeloplasty to repair his kidney. My sister arrived today so we're all here together, something that doesn't happen often with our busy schedules and lives. We all have different priorities, but for now they are all the same.
Take a moment to thank the people who support you throughout your training and racing, and don't hesitate to shift your priorities when they need you. This week is for you dad, nothing but positive thoughts and energy.
