  • Comments: Excellent first Ironman. I would, and may, do it again! The people in town were fantastic. The crowds helped me push on. My family was unable to attend as my father was hospitalized one week before the race. (He is doing ok) I met a local family who basically adopted me for the day and yelled to me, took pictures and made me feel great. Thank you to the Perkins Family! My friend Joe was energetic, supportive and helpful. He made the 12 hour round trip by himself to cheer me on. It is good to have good friends! 6.5 weeks until the Narragansett 1/2 Iron! Next week it is training time again!!!!! I am amazed at how good I feel post race. I thought i would feel very tired and beat up. I do not. I feel great. No joint pain at all. No muscular pain. I never cramped. I have a little muscle soreness but nothing to keep me from normal activities. Overall, I feel very good about the event and am happy that I have attained a long term goal. Thank you to everyone who sent me "Inspire me" notes
