No Jinx...

I certaintly don't want to jinx myself, but last night, possibly due to some Valentine related extraneous internal electrical stimuli (sans race bling...), my erratic heart beat stopped beating....erraticly. The skipped beat is no longer there. Today - no shortness of breath just walking around the house, no thumping in the chest - so while I was very scared my IM hopes and dreams were dashed due to a crappy Marathon decision, I can prematurely state that I will soon be back in the saddle. And pool. And on the road. Yea!

Crapcakes! Have you seen just how horrible my Evotri submission is compared to the likes of Commadores? He's the only one I know that's in the mix...I doubt I'll even make the top 10. Good luck Comms...you put a cool submission together.


This heart thing is wierd. All of a sudden I feel like I have a new lease on life. Well, a new lease on my training anyway. I'm excited, again, to get out there and do it. I'll give it the weekend, to really let my cardiovascular system recover, and next week...ease back into it. All I can say is,


"Lookout Tampa, The.Bigun is Back!"


edit: now I see TriBoomer, Shirly Pearly, and Steve in a Speedo are in the mix - and yes, my submission still lacks any refinement....good luck to all!

Wow the same day Romney endorses McCain, Bigun endorses Comm's.

Flattered. Humbled. Honored.

You could have put a bag over your head while you talked into the camera- and you'll still get a ton of votes...because you're bigun.
