New blog home and name….

I’ve been thinking for a while about migrating over here to WordPress from blogger for a while.

I held off on it, mainly as I didn’t use the blog enough to really feel it was justified. However, as I’ve decided to up the ante with my posting, what better time than to move house too.

The previous blog title, couch potato to Ironman, has been abandoned.

But why Austin?

i hear you all ask

Wait.. whats that? You don’t care?

Well its my blog so I’m gonna tell you anyway.

I started the other blog when I started my journey from being lazy and overweight to being… An athlete?

I’ve since completed 5k;s, 10ks, half marathons, a marathon, sprint tri’s, olympic tri’s, adventure races, a boxing match and 5 half Ironmans.

OK.. I’m still not an Ironman.. and I will get there… but my focus has changed a little.. I have two kids now and Ironman training is a serious time suck. My aim is not to just reach this one lofty goal, its to train and to enjoy it. It’s tough to fit in a full-time job, a family, a triathlon habit, a love of wine and crap TV and the overwhelming desire to write books.

The aim of this blog is entertain, to help (if i can) and to share the ups and downs of trying to do all these things.

This is like an introductory blog post on a 4-year-old blog.. you don’t get those very often.

I havent done this in a while, but if there are any topics you would like to see covered here, drop me a note in the comments below.
