Lake Placid Ironman is this weekend,
Best Wishes to all those who are competing,
Last year I was a volunteer body-marker as well as being there to support a friend who was to become "Iron". It was one of the most incredible weekends of sights, sounds, emotion, tears and triumph.
You don't know yourself until you've trained for Iron. I started training to give moral support for my friend and injured my knee while doing it, so I can't say from first had experience what the WHOLE training is like, but I do know it takes a very special individual to dig deep and tough it out.
Recently I heard a fellow recreational cyclist slag Triathletes, interesting slant he has on them. I can hardly wait to meet with him and have a spirited conversation.
I took this photo of a fellow sporting this t-shirt at IMLP last year, and interestingly I received an email yesterday from a friend of mine asking the very same question. So, I'll ask you......
What will you do with your 86,400 seconds today???
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
