Today is Ironman Canada. Three years ago, I would never have dreamt of even getting to the starting line. But today (Lord willing and with deep thanks to Ted, Charlie, Ernie--the master massage guru, Kristin at Wheenk, Paul and Steve at Cyclewerks San Clemente and, especially Beth and the kids) I am going swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 and then run a marathon until well after dark.
It's going to be a long, hard, good day.
If you'd like, you can follow the race at Ironmanlive.com I am number 1090 and will most likely be firmly, happily, near the rear all day.
