If You Never Tri, You'll Never Know!

Ironman Coeur d'Alene Pre-Race

Untitled Untitled

Is it really a surprise that Chris and I are spontaneously in Idaho for an Ironman?

Okay so it isn't really spontaneous because obviously we signed up months ago and have been training our tails off... but the sign up, the travel, the adventure of it all...entirely spontaneous!!

Ironman Coeur d'Alene is 140.6 miles of swim bike run. We begin in Lake CdA at 6:40 a.m. (8:40 a.m. Central time) with a 2.4 mile swim.


Next we transition into bike gear for 112 miles on the mountains of Idaho...


Once that's complete (and hopefully by cutoff time), we transition into run gear and set out for a 26.2 mile run up and down and in and out of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.


With any event, our #1 goal is to finish. And to finish healthy. Of course we have our own (private) time goals that we'd like to accomplish for each leg and an ideal finish time in mind...but none of that is as important as finishing.

We invite you to "track" us during our event here: http://www.ironman.com/triathlon/coverage/live.aspx#axzz35TfsHp5N

We will also have live coverage from my mom, Anita (who is Ironman tracker guru extraordinaire) and Chris's kid sister Vicki (who tagged along for the ride and has been deemed Sherpa) posting live updates and pictures on our Facebook page here: 

We are super excited that you are a part of this Ironman with us and can't wait to share reports and tips and advice for YOUR first (or 5th) Ironman!
