I have the Ironman itch
Seriously, I woke up this morning itching to do an Ironman. Does that even make sense to most people!? My next scheduled race is a 70.3 in St. Croix. After that, Ironman Netherlands. That's not until August!! I think there's a current bet about how long I will "last" before my next Ironman. If you thought I could make it to August, you lose!! LOL!!
I'm currently looking at Ironman Austria which is July 2nd (my birthday!!) and it's only 5 hours from Tuscany or Ironman Germany on July 9th which is about 9 hours but a super inexpensive plane ride.
Both courses look fantastic and both are just a hop and skip from Italy. HOW EXCITING!!!
Ironman France is July 23rd...
And you know what that means? Training starts NOW!! I mean, I'm training for the 70.3, but I love love love Ironman training! I love the challenge of the long workouts, 4000 meter swims and hours on the bike. It's exhausting and exhilarating!
Yes, it's true, TRIATHLETES ARE CRAZY!
