Track Coach on the clock. I believe I have officially been bitten by the triathlon bug. After competing in a couple sprint triathlons, I am starting to feel like this is something that I can actually do. So, I have decided to try to complete an Ironman Triathlon. I have always admired those guys who gut it out in Kona and in the back of my mind have always wanted to do something like that, but until now I have been too gutless to try. So grab your padded shorts, hammer gel, and here we go.
Obviously, getting 103rd in a sprint triathlon is a far cry from completing an Ironman. I know the journey is going to be long and is going to take a lot of hard work. With adorable wife's blessing, I have decided to try for an Ironman Triathlon three years from now. The plan will be to work this year to get to the point where I can run a marathon and an Olympic Triathlon next year, a half Iron the following, and finally the full monty the year after that.
I just read back through this post and man... it's boring. I guess it's hard for me to be clever and witty when I think about the three years of training I have in front of me. Well, here's to staying on track and injury free! Well yay me... let's Suit Up!
