Peter The Great

To recap...

This summer my Tri Team had a preview screening of the new Triathlon documentary "What It Takes". Three-Time World Ironman Champion Peter Reid and director Peter Han were scheduled to join us for the movie. I was very excited.

The morning of the screening I found out Peter Reid cancelled his appearance. I made what some might consider "inappropriate comments and gestures" towards Mr. Reid. I was very upset.

Our Tri-team leader showed the director my blog entries. I was very mortified.

Now to continue the story...

What I didn't mention is that when Peter Han was apologizing to me for Reid's cancellation, he promised he would get me my autographed magazine cover. And sure enough, it arrived yesterday. I am excited again.

Now then, the big question is "did Peter Han show my blog to Peter Reid?" I don't know. If he did, then one of the greatest triathletes of all time thinks I'm a psycho. Well he wouldn't be the first. The important thing is that I have Peter Reid's autograph hanging on my wall and I think that's pretty cool.

If he read the blog, he doesn't THINK you're a psycho, he KNOWS you're a psycho.

Then again, it would mean that one of the greats in triathlon is reading your blog. Something most are unable to say.
