The other day someone left a comment on my blog saying they admired my dedication and to keep it up. "My dedication?" was my first thought, then of course the second was "who is this person?" So I clicked on the profile link and was introduced to Cagey. And what is the first thing I read about Cagey but…

"I'm currently deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I hope to return home in March 2006 and begin training for the summer triathlon season. I'm also considering a fall marathon."

This guy admires MY dedication? You have got to be kidding! On a daily basis he is facing life threatening events and then on the side he is training for a triathlon!! I ADMIRE YOUR DEDICATION, CAGEY!! YOU ROCK!!

The blog says it all:

"We’re extremely fortunate to have courageous men and women like you serving our country. And we’re amazed that you’re continuing your training while in Iraq. So keep your head down and stay safe until you get back to a place where the biggest training hazard is that brutal North Carolina summer heat." (read the entire blog entry)

Be safe Cagey!!

I second your sentiments on Cagey. The only thing I have to worry about is a little running now an then. -Stay strong, stay safe Cagey!
