You guys are too nice! Thank you so much for the love and I apologize I haven’t been able to respond or follow-up with my post-Ironman thoughts yet.
Ohh…my two seconds of fame in the IMCDA 2013 recap video.
I’m about 20 seconds getting my body marking. I’M FAMOUS MA!
As they warn, I’ve been hit with the post-Ironman bug. It’s like my body said, “Now that you’re done, I can finally release all of those viruses I’ve been holding back for so long and let them viciously attack you.” Doing anything productive, or putting together a coherent sentence, takes far too much energy. My sloth-like self has downing copious amount of DayQuil while sprawling lazily across the couch, wishing that network TV would make better daytime programming.
In-between blowing my nose and hawking up God knows what, I’ve been preparing for my move to Portland…which is happening TOMORROW! Another thank you is due for everyone who has emailed me their personal Portland insight and recommendations – they are valued beyond belief.
I moved to California from Nevada five years ago and have since grown to love this over-priced, yet beautiful adventure land. It’s where I fell back in love with running, grew into a triathlete, and met my best friends. This new adventure is rich with anticipation and excitement, but also sadness as I leave my friends and family.
Great rewards require great risk and I’m sticking with my 2013 resolution to live adventurously. I’ll be sure to report back on more Ironman thoughts soon and I hope you’ll stick with me as I share my next adventure…including training for my next goal.
Next time we chat, I’ll be checking in from the Pacific Northwest.
