This just in: Please help me win

Hi there.

I started this blog as a way to keep myself on course in losing weight and training for Timberman 70.3. At first, I didn't know and didn't care if anyone else would read. Now I love the fact that there are people who not only read but interact with me about losing weight and training. I've learned a lot from those of you who have taken the time to interact, and from those who haven't... thanks for reading anyways it still means a ton.

Now, I have a favor to ask (on top of donating to Team Tyler, of course). USA Triathlon has a photo caption contest each quarter, and my submission is a finalist for the caption of the month. I got the email a couple of weeks ago and promptly forgot all about it. If I win, I get a prize pack from Rudy Project, one of my favorite sponsors. Here's the picture

My submission is "Yeah, Matty Reed thinks he dropped me. He doesn't realize I finished the course 6 times already."

(For those who don't know, Matty Reed is top tier triathlete)

The link to the poll is here: http://www.usatriathlon.org/poll

Please if you wouldn't mind taking a minute to vote for my submission, I'd appreciate it. I'm currently down by about 65 votes.


  1. Voted for you. Hope it helps!

  2. Thank you so much kind sir! With about 20 hours left, I have recently taken the lead, and I'm hopeful some of my other friends will keep the pedal to the metal to ensure a win.

  3. It seems your audience wants you to win - blazing out in front there!

  4. Sorry, I'm to late, interested to see if you won

  5. Inertia - It seems they did.

    Derek - indeed I did. Looks like you I didn't need your vote LOL
