2012 Ironman Arizona

It's been an interesting year and Ironman Arizona was a great way to wrap up my season. There were a few ups and downs along the way but when I arrived in Tempe, my head was in a good place and my body was in decent race shape.

Ironman Eve -- Arizona 2012

Print PDF

It's been an interesting day here in Tempe.  It started off with a swim in the lake followed by a short brick and then a trip to the transition area to drop off our stuff.  This process is becoming more confusing to me despite the fact that this isn't my first rodeo.

Two Days and Counting -- Ironman Arizona 2012

Print PDF

Two days until race day and I’m relatively calm.  Not surprising though – there’s an incredible amount of life “stuff” going on in the background and it’s doing a good job of keeping me distracted.  I’m not sure for how much longer though.  The racers are arriving and although it seems a little more low key than most other races, it’ll be hard to ignore the frightening stares from the Preparation H crowd.  Tomorrow will be full on Ironman for sure.

2012 Ironman World Championship

The first time you race Kona, you have no idea what to expect.  You hear the stories about the challenges you will face but you think -- I'm different.

As an athlete who squeaks into the "big dance", I took a humble approach in my first attempt but regardless, it was a less than stellar performance.

Twas the Night Before Kona

Print PDF

And all through the house, not a creature was stirring.... hmmm.... well, that's not exactly true.  I'm stirring, simmering and even a little bit stressed.  It was an interesting day to say the least.  And now I find myself finally able to relax but my mind is going 90 miles per hour.

I'm trying to relax and I felt that writing might help.   But if I just mentally unload on my blog, that probably won't provide much entertainment for y'all so how about a picture show?
