OOPs I did it again…

Well it is funny how your mind set goes from NEVER  AGAIN to OK which one is next?!!

Lets go back to September 11th at about 4pm. I had started the IMWI run and I had a shitty bike ride and I was NEVER EVER doing another Ironman.  I told Dan!! (He reminds me every day of that moment.)  Now fast forward to 9pm that same day.  After having an amazing run and almost a sub 5 hr marathon I decided that maybe I would do another Ironman.  I have been wanting to do Copenhagen since 2015, so I thought 2017 would be a good year for that!! I just wasn’t going to be able to retire from Ironman without racing it!

So I signed up!!

We are going to Europe!!  Our tickets are booked! There is no turning back!!

NOW, lets talk about Kona.  I have NEVER EVER had any desire to race Kona.  I would much rather spectate that one.  BUT Dan and I started talking about Kona Legacy.  I only really knew about it because we have a friend that is going for it.  Dan and I thought you only had to do 10 IM races…which is already a lot but I was 1/2 way there. HA, we checked and it is actually 12 races.  I have been wavering back and forth if I really wanted to do it.  But if I was actually going to think about it, I better start upping that number that I have done.

So I signed up for Arizona:

It is going to be tough now that I have already started to think about Kona because once I start thinking about something, it never really goes away!!  I am definitely in trouble! (kind of like Copenhagen) 😉

I told some girlfriends that I was thinking about Kona.  I got this text the next day!

In the mean time, I have pretty much decided to do Victoria 70.3 for my tune up.  We don’t really have a lot of choices up in the NW so that is going to be my best bet. Plus that is my PR.  This course is most like Copenhagen so I think it will be perfect.

Good news is Ironman does an All World Athlete program which I don’t even really know what it means or that it will really matter but I made the bronze category this year. Woot Woot!!!  If I can get a better spot in transition then it will be worth it!

Those are my big races for the year!  It is going to go by fast. It is already almost February!

Who wants to go spectate Kona if I get a slot?!
