Why the name....

"DT Wound Tight" was a nickname given to me by some friends/co-workers in my first "real" job years ago at Cargill. I guess they were referring to my natural tendency (at least at that time) to be strung a little tighter than the relaxed mid-Westerners I was working with. I, of course, would never have admitted to it back then, but now that I am older I can see where they were coming from.

Good news is I have learned to be much more relaxed about most things in life - something that I hope will prolong my life well into the future! I guess I can thank a great wife and a wonderful family and kids for a better perspective.

This blog is primarily for me and my personal challenge to keep personally well rounded and heathly. That hasn't always been a priority for me in my life and it certainly is a constant struggle.

This blog will help me be accountable to my goals and my life perspective. If others enjoy it, that will just be gravy!


  1. Welcome to the blogosphere! Looking forward to following your adventures.

  2. It's all your fault! Still trying to figure a few things out. How do I search and find people to follow?

  3. There's a couple of ways.

    Once you find a blog you like, see if they list any blogs on their page. (mine does.) Follow them. Many people, if you leave a comment on their blogs, will follow you back and read yours. If you pique their curiosity you'll gain readers.

    If you go to the google blog search page and put in triathlon and whatever other search terms you like, you'll find more than you can read in any reasonable amount of time.

    Some blogs list followers, you can click on those and follow them back to their blogs. Not all followers have blogs.
