Good To Be Back Home After IV Canadian National TX Games

Leaving Scottsdale, AZ. Early Sunday Morning August 3, 2008 for my 6 AM Flight to Windsor, Ontario.
The Venue for both Cycling Races and the 5 K Run were just Great as you raced along the Detroit River with Caesar's to the South and The Detroit Skyline to the North.

Taking off hard in the Road Race and attacking on each laps uphill I got far away from the pack and had a motor bike escort for a few laps. Then they began getting in the way and not going fast enough to stay in front of me.

After First Place Overall Gold and A New Canadian TX Games Record
CBC TV asked for an Interview.
Talking about Donor Awareness and all my great Canadian Friends.
I discussed the Games and "A Second Chance at Life."

You Train, You Prepare and You can never Thank Enough all those that Aid & Support You.
All My Friends at Landis Cyclery, Trek and my Coach Deeann for Getting me to this Point.

All Told Five more Gold in the Pool.
Truly enjoying winning the Medley and Free Style Relays.
Then two more Silver and a Bronze at Track & Field.

Great Fun to Compete but
the Real Gem is spending Time with your World TX Community Brothers and Sisters.
Thank You Windsor LOC, All Volunteers and
my Good Friends Team Segatto.

Almost off to Canada for their IV National TX Games

Tuesday in Canada will be the Time Trial and Road Race. Yesterday on my way back home from TT Intervals up on DC Ranch up in the Hills I got Hit By A Car.
Thank God after fish tailing and sliding across Cactus Road I came to a stop in front of A Maricopa County Sheriff on Duty for the Road Construction. Almost a nightmare but just little achs and pains today with repairs done to my Bike that afternoon at my Bike Sponsor Landis Cyclery. One more tough workout tomorrow then pack & go.

In Pittsburgh or as I have learned "The Burgh." Fire Works after the
Pirates Baseball Game the first Friday Night in Pit.

Take Your Marks. On the Starting blocks for the 100 Breast in Pit.
Gold and a new American Record by 4 Seconds.
Weds. will be the Swimming Events in Canada.
Hoping to do Well?

Giving Stan Brady, My Donor's Father My World TX Team Hoodie to wear in Cape Cod's always Windy some times Cold Weather.

(Mike Brady) Brady Michaels my Heart Donor as he had his Name Legally Changed for his SAG & Afta Memberships. How Lucky could I be to get such a Wonderful Heart!
