Couch to 13.1, 30day Challenge

As I mentioned before, I want to get my “runner girl“ identity back so what better to do then a crazy challenge?! I am going to do a “couch-ish to 13.1, 30 day challenge.” I don’t think the race will be pretty and nor will it be super, spectacularly fast but this will at least […]

Ironman Cozumel Part 2

Continued from Ironman Cozumel…. Swim – 7am the pro division heads into the water, that was my 30min till go time mark. I lined up with the 1:20 – 1:30 wave since it was a rolling start as opposed to the normal mass start of an Ironman event. Little did we know that 7:30 start […]
