19 Days

19 long days before the start of my first Ironman

Im going to be completely honest: I'm crapping my pants.  I never thought this day would arrive.  A year long's worth of ups and downs and the day is so close i can taste it on the edge of my lips.  

My friend is gracious enough to let me stay in her room during part of my stay.  That's such a big help especially to help my body get acclimatized to the weather.  I don't know what to expect but Im doing research and will survey the environment when i arrive.

Here's a brief glimpse of what triathletes go through in order to get ready for one of these races.  IT's not just a sport it's a way of life.  And a motivational vid along to boot!

back to training!


  1. The extent of the injury that one can incur on their body by pushing it too far and then completely crashing is incredible. One of the main reasons to train as hard as you can and know your limits.

  2. i dont think i could manage that..

  3. Can you imagine training for the event and on the day you wake up with a cold?

  4. Wow the motivation of some people is mind boggling!
