A bowel movement, properly considered, actually starts with your first bite. When you swallow your food, it goes down the esophagus and into your stomach. Here your food churns around for two to four hours until it is broken down into a soupy mush called chyme. The chyme is then gradually squeezed out of the stomach and through a long, coiled tube—the small intestine. Here the mashed food that you’ve eaten gets absorbed into the bloodstream.

As I have transitioned into a new job as the Brigade Operations Officer for 1st Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division - my time and my recovery from training are both becoming more and more important.
My time for training is absolutely critical because I must be judicious and efficient with my time in my new job. It isn’t uncommon to work late into the evening hours and report back for work early the next morning before the sun has risen.

1992 was my first triathlon racing season. I was 48 and a total novice.
Flash forward 23 years and the good news is: I’ve had 23 great years. The not-so-good news is: I’m now racing as a 71-year-old.
Clearly, I’m coming into the home stretch and can now see a finish line that wasn’t there when I was forty-eight. But, I’m not done with this adventure yet
