Taking a Break

trsradio69trsradio69 Member, TRS/Baucco Officers
I've decided to step away from the podcast for a while, in order to focus on my new job and real life. I'm also walking away from twitter. Frankly, I'm not really sure when I'll start the podcast (or twitter) back up again. It might be a few months, it might be longer.

Thank you Webstey and Zach Boring for holding down the fort with the site and the team.

I'll be in Kona. Paulo knows how to find me.

Best Regards,

Ben Hobbs

    I have it on reliable sources you're focusing your time and energy on campaigning for Ted Cruz.

    Well, seems like you're prioritizing the right things. You'll be missed, but hopefully this allows you to come back refreshed and refocused. All the best.

    When I got the Patreon email I was wondering if you had been hacked. Guess not. Wish you well and good luck with your new job. Hope the break will be exactly what you want and, for us, short. You will be missed.

    Typical AG triathlete "one and done" move.

    No, in all seriousness, i hope TRS can keep up the good work and interviews going.

    Good luck Ben. Sometimes a change like this seems overwhelming. It can also be refreshing. Stop by and let us know how things are going. Your responsible for bringing this group of hooligans together. It's a pretty awesome group that I'm happy to be a part of. Thanks.

    You sent this notice out the day after I signed up for Patreon payments. Sorry guys, I think this was my fault :-\

    I'll miss the show, but until your return, best of luck in work and life. Looking forward of the Inevitable Return of the Great White Dope.

    The worst thing to happen to triathlon since aerobars and/or drugs.

    Just so nobody gets confused: I'll be sending out links to new website content via the TRS_Tri twitter account, through a 3rd party app (SocialPilot). I can not reply to your tweets or see DMs via this app.

    Will miss it! Guess it's back to Babbittville. And, paying more attention to the election. Oh, this is really bad.

    Decided to try another triathlon podcast to distract from the misery of my easy run. Now I'm even more depressed about Ben taking a break. It was just awful.
