In a few short days, I will set out to finish my first, and likely last, full IronMan – 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and 26.2 mile marathon. Training has consumed a ridiculous amount of time, up to 24 hours in my peak weeks. This has been a fairly mild summer, so I fully expect it to be blast furnace hot on race day.
Getting to this point has required A LOT of sacrifice on my part, as well as my Better Half, my little angels, etc… I am very fortunate.
Every morning around 4:30, I watch this video, to try to get my head right.
Wish me luck, death, massive carnage, whatever the case may be …
