|The Return of the Prodigal Son (1773) byPompeo Batoni|
Parable of the Prodigal Son - Luke 15:11
In writing about my turn back to athletics over the past 6 years, this was just a great reminder of where I was in life. There will always be problems, even in my day to day life now. Back then, I made good money, moved to San Francisco, could do whatever I pleased, but something was missing and in search of that I blew through that income and wasted away a good chunk of my 20's on partying and pure debauchery. It was a lot of fun though;)
Leading into Kona I'm happy for my 2nd chance at enjoying my athletic life. There is more to life than just Swim/Bike/Run, but it helps make me a happier person to enjoy everything else even more.
Unfortunately I forgot a step in this story and didn't ask my father for the family money
