My wife pointed something out to me this morning. Training for this triathlon has been great for me, I'm more toned than I've been in 15 years, lighter than I've been in 20 and generally pretty happy with myself. Every trip to the closet is a reminder that my current clothes no longer fit and some of the old time classics in deep storage actually look ok again. Unfortunately, this is getting pretty boring for the people I live with.
Right now I feel like I've made a new friend - myself - and I love hanging out with him. But I need to be careful not to neglect my old friends and family.
