The Tour de France

Long runs

My training partners (four legged and two legged)

The finish line

Mountain bikes

Positive attitudes

The Olympic Movement

My flight out of Beijing

Matt Cassell and Tom Brady

Sobriety

A job that interests me

The chance to see Usain Bolt become the Fastest Man in the world

Meeting Shawn Johnson, Ryan Lochte, Bela Karolyi, Mary Lou Retton, Nadia Comaneci, Bart Connor, Nastia Liukin, the entire US Mens Gymnastics team, Shalane Flannagan, Allyson Felix, Abby Wambach, Deena Kastor, Laura Bennett, Laura Wilkinson, Jeremy Wariner, Phil Dalhausser, Todd Rogers, Johann Bruyneel and many, many other inspiring people, all in the name of my job.

A wife that understands

Cold Gatorade

Wild spaces

Ski season

Nonny hugs

Massages

The training sequences in the first Rocky

Strength

Prayer

The lake on the Cape

And everyone that reads this blog.
