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.
