Ironman Hawaii - countdown begins!

Friends and family,

WOW, is it really 2 weeks until Ironman Hawaii? How did that happen? Where did summer go?

I find myself in a place I have not been for 3 years and 6 weeks. That place is Ironman Tapering. The dreaded 3 weeks leading into the big day. I always find the first week he worst...

  1. did I do enough?

  2. am I ready?

  3. pain, are you my friend?

Here are my answers and some sage advice for others walking into the Ironman storm.

  1. Doesn't matter, what's done is done. Look forward only.

  2. No matter what the training log says, YES U R!

  3. He and I will have a 10 hour conversation October 8th. I plan to lay him out Ali style.

It is two weeks tomorrow until race day. Look for some updates here and hopefully daily logs when I get to Kona Saturday, October 1st.
