A Little Encouragement

This weekend I happened to find out the full Ironman was being held in Boulder, CO not far from where we’re parked. I absolutely wanted to take a peek at that race!

The FULL Ironman consists of a 2.4 mile swim followed by  112 mile bicycle ride and topped off with a full marathon (26.2 miles). In case there is any misunderstanding – they do all these things, in this order AT ONCE! (Not, say, iver a weekend.) These athletes are the top of the top! And I’m just talking about the amateurs.  Pros race too, of course.

Since we’ve been full timing we have found it difficult to keep a consistent workout schedule.  This is a big deal since we’ve both always been athletic.  We put on weight, lost some and then put some back on. Ugh! But we’re back to a downward trend and watching the Ironman have me the push I needed to realign my priorities.

I dont aspire to do an Ironman or even a half Ironman. But I do want to do more triathlons!
