The past few weeks have involved a lot of fun projects. A big event for me each year is a major triathlon focused expo and seminar/clinic day in Boston. I've had the honor of speaking each year the event has happened, so about 14-15 years at this point which surprises me to say out loud!
It's a blast of a day seeing many athletes I coach, many friends of old and making new friends as well. The day feels like a "season kickoff" or a family reunion - you cant' go 10 feet without seeing someone you know but haven't seen in while. Makes for a really good time.
My talk was very well received based on the feedback many of the 200-250 who attended provided. Feels good to have a lot of hard work in preparation rewarded with good feedback - feels better knowing I was able to give those athletes something to apply down the road which could help them stay healthier and perform better.
That was the capstone of a period with a few school projects due, normal work, and a seminar last Thursday night and yesterday (Monday) as well for a few different groups. Thankfully I have a bit of time here now where I can focus on family, normal coaching work, school work and finally get some fishing in and tie some flies!

And with the chance to fish a bit, I hope to take a lead from "Trout Stream Day Dreams". Coleman over there describes some awesome mid western, but also north eastern adventures - we have never met, but actually fish a lot of the same water here in the north east actually. Because of that, his recent posts about / or showing the results of using a tiny woolly bugger got me figuring I better whip up a few - This is my attempt at the fly he's posted a few times lately. Fingers crossed I can get it wet in the next few days!
Have a super day everyone - get out and fish!
