"I will be 20 this summer and am planning on doing Ironman Montreal. This will be my first year of triathlon, but short course doesn't motivate me that much. I need a big challenge that requires extreme motivation. I come from a little running background, doing half-marathons and 10K races, but nothing longer than that.
Every time I talk about my goal to do an Ironman in ’09 to a coach, they quickly tell me that I'm going too fast. I personally think I can do it. I've been training since September and Ironman Montreal is September 12, 2009, so I have a year to train for it. I'm planning on doing an oly, maybe one or two HIM in July/August, and then my Ironman. Can I do this and stay away from injuries? "
