I signed up. With shaking hands and my stomach in knots I officially signed up to compete in my first Ironman 70.3 triathlon!
This has been my goal and my dream since I started doing triathlons two years ago. I knew I had to give it some time though and first learn the basics of the sport. I’ll be the first to admit that I still have A LOT more to learn about triathlons, but I do feel confident that I know enough about the training (and especially how much training) I’m going to have to do. I’m actually pretty excited to start a 25-week training plan for the race – remind me of this once I get through the first couple weeks though 😉
Overall I am super nervous, but also really excited. 2016 is going to be the year I can say I am competing in an Ironman and I already get goose bumps just thinking about crossing the finish line.
Here’s to my “A” race of 2016 and special thanks for early registration from Cleveland Triathlon Club! (The event is already sold out.) This is going to be a race to remember!
