Third Time's The Charm


What a day. Since I'm too exhausted to write, I'll leave it with this: I set a 41-minute PR today at my second Ironman in 7 weeks. It didn't come easy. The day was hard every step of the way and at times I didn't think I had it in me. But I had great support and a deep personal drive to make it happen. When I started being coached 21 months ago, I wrote goals for this sport, and my pie in the sky goal was to do my first Ironman in under 13 hours. It wasn't my first and the road here felt long at times, but I did it. Third time Ironman in 12:48:28.

  10. Nice title! I wonder where the inspiration for that came from ;) Possibly a little sign posted on the run course?
