For those of you familiar with the site, you might have noticed a minor change at the top of the page. It was long overdue that a new header be put there. The initial transformation that started at the beginning of the year is well underway, and the journey has shifted focus from "become a triathlete" to "become an Ironman."
Mrs. Pol was probably the first to make the call that this would be about more than one summer spent learning to swim enough to complete one short race. Perhaps the title "Iron Pol" was freudian, revealing more about myself than intended. Sometimes, simple statements reveal a great deal about who we are and where we are going.
The original plan was to put the basics together, and have Little Miss Runner Pants make it presentable. She looked at the two versions I sent her and said that she could do little more than recreate them. She did, however, give her two cents worth as to which header to use. I would have expected nothing less.
So, the header is there. I have one final piece to add, but it may take a while to find or create. Until then, I'll go with this.
Please let me know your thoughts. And don't worry about hurting my feelings if you have critical comments. I have no delusions of being an amazing graphic artist or designer. Any constructive comments will be greatly appreciated. And if you just want to tell me how amazing I am, that's fine, too.
