So now, I'm all signed up for the Ironman 70.3 Racine triathlon on July 21, almost exactly six months from now. That should be plenty of time to get lean, fast, ripped and ready, right?
Thanks to my friends for pushing encouraging me into this new challenge. The truth is, knowing how much money I put into this race registration will deter me from slacking off. Knowing that start line is waiting for me, my bib number is reserved and there's a spot for my bike waiting will fuel me when I'm feeling lazy. Registering for a race that required me to enter my health insurance information is just the spark I need to get moving.
Ironman 70.3 Racine, I'm coming for you. For the next six months, I will eat, sleep and train to conquer.
