90 days til IMLP... COOL!... WAIT.. 90 days?? that can't be right! check..double check the calender..


GULP.... PANIC.... Can't breath.. CAN"T BREATH!!!

holy COW.. 90 FREAKING days til IRONMAN!

ok.. breathe in... hold.... breathe ooooouuuuuuttttt.......

wait a minute... i just did 16 hours of training this week.. and Just a little tired... Wait a minute... 16 hours... REALLY?? I did?? And i'm not tired... I'm not tired.. Holy cow !!1

wow.. maybe i CAN do this Ironman.... you know.. I think i CAN... 16 hours is my goal finish time.. I survived.. No i SUCCESSFULLY navigated my way through a TOUGH training week. I FREAKING DID IT!!!!
ok.. i think i can do this! You better bring it Ironman.. Because i think i can kick your BUTT!

Until tomorrow sparkpeople! It's an AWESOME DAY!

    I echo ON2VICTORY's statement. I have only done a 70.3 (Wildflower), so I have a sense what kind of challenge this is. I have two friends who are doing IM Lake Placid.

    I was at the Lake Placid IronMan 2 summers ago cheering on total strangers. It was a pretty great experience from my end...I'll find out if my sister (she has a vacation home) will be there during the race. Get me your race number and you'll have even more people cheering just for you!!
