Nice job on the article! I like to hear how people handle family in different ways... Family time is something you will never get back. I either ran to or rode the bike to many of my sons baseball games this summer.

Excellent article, interesting to see the different approaches to inclusion or separation with family and training.

I particularly like the idea of having the family meet at the end of a point to point ride and treating them.

I do the "up at 5am to run" thing so I'm back to help with breakfast before work, seems to be a popular training time.

You’re probably not going to get it just right immediately. Like always, just do the best you can and keep on keeping on. Don’t get upset if you don’t hit the target every time.

I had read the articles on BT, I'd trained, and I thought I had prepared. There were, however, a few things that I didn't internalize despite what I'd been told.

I heard an athletic trainer say that in life we have many setbacks. The key is to overcome these setbacks, but the question is how?
