I GOT A DOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love animals and i was looking at getting one. I first thought of a red fish or a bird but it would not be really helpfull for training so i went for a dog! Please, meet my new dog Harry!!!!!!!!



Harry isnt with me in Las Cruces. He is actually at a special training center in new zealand where he is show all the trick and technic to be a good ironman dog. He is learning to run up to 2h at a sub 6min mile pace. He is also a very good swimmer and my good friend Nick is working on making him a bike that would fit him! Harry will pass time in between Tauranga and taupo where he can really be expose to the ironman culture. Here s a pic of his first training lesson with the instructor jess.... harry is learning how to do effective beach start for races.....
He also is learning all the proper recovery technic with instructor Nick here! I m suppose to go get him next winter! until then, jess and nick are better take good care of Harry the irondog!!!!

oh...jess and nick are getting married next year!!!!! CONGRADULATION!!!! i really hope i can make it!!!

training today: 4h ride with 45min hard!
swim: 4.3km ...... i m pretty tired so i try to not talk to much about training!!!
