One hundred eighty. That’s the number of days until Ironman Cozumel.
To some people, that’s the number of days in a school year, which for many just wrapped up.
To me, it’s the number of days I have to prepare for the hardest race of my life. Between now and November 30, 2014, I’ll be logging more
miles kilometers on my Newtons (more than one pair will be gone through…), swim almost as much as I did when I was in college, and spend more hours than many do in a work day plopped on my bike saddle riding the rural roads of Florida.
It’s a daunting task that lies ahead and no doubt about it I am kinda sorta a little freaked out. I’ll be making sacrifices over the next 6 months (goodbye weekends) and may sound like a broken record (“Sorry, I can’t, I’m training for an Ironman”), but when I cross that finish line, I know that the sense of accomplishment will be overwhelming and make it all worth it.
So, bring it on Ironman training. Show me what you got. (And show me what I’ve got!)
