While the rest of you were racing….

or training or watching Ironmanlive I was roaming the heartland enjoying yet another fine celebration of my firstborn’s marriage and touring hundreds of acres of corn and soybean fields and chatting with cattle and climbing grain silos and well… you get the picture. And if that didn’t do it I will post pictures when I get home – I have some great ones.

A huge thank you to everyone who responded to my poll. A plan is forming and I will share it soon, too. An extra HUGE thanks to those of you who have so much confidence in my ability to handle a 1/2 IM. The jury is still deliberating in my head on that one but it’s very nice to know that so many people think it’s time for me to step up to that distance.

Before all of that, though I would like to congratulate this weekend’s Ironpeeps – Momo and Benny must have high fived each other out there once or twice and they both had great races. Jenny ripped it up in Europe in her inimitable and indefatigable way (the woman is a MAHCHEEN!) and to Mrs. Everyman for being able to get her race on in spite of a nasty eye infection. Several members of my race club crossed the line, too. Wil and Michelle and Shelly and Triboomer and Greyhound all did 1/2 IMs as did the DPR – she rocked that Buffalo Springs 70.3 – woot! The Kahuna evaded the sharks and conquered the hills. It was a good weekend for racing and for being an Iron Sherpa for Nytro and Carrie.

CONGRATULATIONS!

    I’m late to the polls, so I’ll just say, I hope you take on the half. I think you will like, in particular becasue you have more time to train. When you’ve got the momentum going up, you might as well flow with it and see where it takes you. You just can’t beat corn and soybeans-I’ll feel your pain in a couple weeks as I transverse Iowa and Nebraska-whoo now there’s some site seeing for you.

    do you ever find cattle unpleasant to talk to when the topic turns, as it always does, to politics?
    does anyone else get the tune of the jetsons looping in their head when they read your posts?

  5. You are sweet to think of all of us!!!
    Thanks!!!!

    Can’t wait for the pictures! I’m actually partial to corn fields. I find them relaxing. Except when angry rabbits are charging out of them. I hope you didn’t encounter any angry rabbits!

    You CAN do the HIM! And if you’re thinkin’ about it, you wanna do it. You know you wanna! We’ll all be cheering for you!
