Hey There #fitfam,
It will comes as no surprise that I have been bitten by the Ironman bug – HARD!
I absolutely loved training and racing a full 140.6
I LOVED it SO MUCH, that the concept of not racing a full in 2017 made me feel completely lost.
Sure I had 2 non-branded 70.3 races on my race schedule, that didnt fill my void.
I contemplated the whole SOLO Ironman concept – AKA I really long workout.
But that still didn’t “do it for me”
When my cousin Joy came up with the idea of a girls vacation I quickly jumped on the – – how do you feel about me racing on this trip???
Luckily I have two of the most amazing cousins – Joy and Dawn – and they said “GO FOR IT! We would love to cheer you on!”
I quickly decided on IM Los Cabos – Joy loves Cabo and it seemed like an easy choice. Sure it would be HOT and HILLY, but I was tough.
Then reality set in… Could I complete such a difficult race?
And the timing was just not right (Both Dawn and I have kids with birthdays during the IM CABO race week).
An Ironman shouldn’t be chosen on a whim, it takes research and planning, should not be taken lightly.
After a little thought I set my eyes on Ironman Cozumel with its crystal waters and FLAT bike course. After a winter of hard interval training I’d love the chance to KILL IT on the bike, not just “finish” again.
The Cousins were all for in Cozumel… YAY!
And I registered!
Now the countdown has begun.
Training has officially begun,
and I am feeling WHOLE once again.
