30 Days

I had to pinch myself this morning when I saw today is July 17th, 2014.  I have exactly 30 days until IMMT, is this really happening?!

30 Days from right now, I will be somewhere on the course, most likely the bike, hammering away at the mountains in Tremblant Quebec.  If all goes well, 30 days from today I will be an IRONMAN!

Seven years ago, when I finished my first triathlon (a sprint tri in my hometown), I never thought I would do an Ironman.  I was brand new to the sport and I thought you had to be a superhuman/genetic freak to do an Ironman.  Fast forward to now, I am one of those superhumans and I am damn proud of it.  To say I am obsessed with this sport is an understatement.

I feel like I am made for this. 

Here is a quote I’m loving today, that’s getting me pumped up for these next 30 days!

“I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.”

-Mia Hamm


Have a great Thursday!!

    That is an awesome quote. I usually say we are just banking miles to be cashed in on race day! Kind of the same!!! 🙂
