Favorite Race Distances:
Ironmans and Marathons
What I love about Ironman:
For those of us who do multiple Ironmans, it defines us. Plus, after a couple years of IM training, those annoying co-workers quit asking us to lunch (because they know we’re sneaking in a quick run), the in-laws stop dragging us to holiday bazaars on Saturdays (“Sure, I’ll go with you if we can ride our bikes there at a 20 mph average and continue on for 5 hours”) and we quit getting pressured to have more kids, work longer hours, attend more family functions and host all those modern-day icky Tupperware-type parties because, well, all our friends/relatives/co-workers think we’re psycho exercise fanatics and they are right. Hooray!
Victoria ½ Ironman. Canada Ironman.
Even when it hurts, put a smile on your face. It will make you feel better!
