Eduardo Sturla

Since a long time I don’t write in my blog. Sometimes because I am very tired, sometimes because i honestly do not know what to say, sometimes because I’m not sure about the next step. Perhaps the correct order is backwards haha ...

Since December 2012 I am in Brazil, in Rio de Janeiro, where my wife lived with her family. We chose to come here because of a couple of personal factors and also to try something different. Since a long time she tells me how good it would be to come to Rio and I resisted. So finally here we are. In the beginning was very hard to find my routine and organize the places to train. Anyone who knows me knows how I have a structure and mental set that it’s not very “flexible” (or maybe nothing! haha). But I’m definitely enjoying to live in Rio. The "famous" cool Brazilians are not just "fame" is a fact. I met people who pulled me all the good vibes and I am very grateful for your help.

Ok, so I finally have my 1st semester set. I'll be in Rio until the Ironman Brazil (May 26) that is my main goal. Less than one month ago I got my new bike, the BMC Time Machine 01. I can tell you: the bike is a rocket. No doubt that it is a great motivation for the old warrior. Not that I consider myself old, for me the “oldness” is in the mind, not in the date of birth. But it’s never too much to have something new to give some motivation. Especially if it's a good thing. The bike is beautiful but needs a powerful engine. So that’s what I’m doing now: training hard, respecting my body and thinking about what's coming.

April 07th will be my first race, in São Carlos, State of São Paulo, where I will race GP EXTREME. It's a tt race of 1km swimming, 100km cycling and 10km running. It's funny but I hear of São Carlos for many years. My father in law lived and studied there and since I know him he tells me "Eduardo, São Carrrrlos (with the accent from the people that lives in small towns) has the best weather in the world." I would never know the famous place, so dear and loved by him if it wasn’t for that race. I think the biggest pressure that I have is that he’s going to watch it ... hahaha… So I'll be there in the first weekend of April, thinking and preparing for another battle.

I will enjoy this post to thank a few people. Undoubtedly important for the development of my training in Rio, VELOX Fitness Club. They give me the entire structure. Zimbra, spinning great teacher. To Rafa Gonçalvez, Dudu Gonzalez, Luis Magon, the boys from 3shop that put my TM01 together. Super Carlinhos for the patience to wait for long hours on the road, to Dalvirene that needs a massage after giving me a massage.

Never forget the goal and do things with joy, without thinking in how many hours you will do your race. Enjoy!
When I learned to enjoy Rio I found an incredible place!
Be close from people you love. Nothing better than that.

Never give up!
Abrazo.
Eddie
