it’s happening…!

After a lot of discussion, some hesitation, and the grace and generosity of two of the most amazing people on the planet, this happened yesterday…


Registration for Ironman Canada 2013 in Whistler is official.



I’m a little nervous already – and, keep pinching myself that I’m actually going to DO an ironman – but mostly ecstatic to race with my partner in crime at the first-ever 140.6 in Whistler. And, I can’t thank my parents enough for this incredible opportunity… truly the best birthday + Christmas present ever 🙂

        I have a three sprints and an Oly planned for 2013, maybe a 70.3 depending on how I do on the other races. Also a full marathon on the docket for next September. That’s why I figure 2014 for my first full 140.6 and maybe Kona in 2015. 🙂

        October 19, 2012
    • Sounds like your 2013 is shaping up nicely! I say go for the 70.3, too 🙂
