so i went out to dinner with my in-laws last night and we were talking about the race and MIL says "oh is that the one someone died at!?"

went home and hit up the google, and sure enough, about 10 minutes in someone from one of the early waves fell and hit his head some bizarre way and died from the injuries.  complete freak accident.  i started in wave 11 and saw nothing strange and heard nothing about it either...crazy.

lol.. I couldn't control the heat part...

my fitness level yes, it could have been better.. I expected to hurt from that.. the added heat just made it miserable..

Im running today.. something short to get the legs moving. I feel really good today

I just started doing tris this summer and I have two under my belt, both sprints. Is it reasonable to build up for a Oly in early ‘09, with a HIM in Oct of ‘09

Steady is our walk. Ignoring the pain that is radiating from my feet, I continue to place one foot in front of the other. Again I wonder, “Why am I doing this?”

Having three seasons under my belt I thought I knew what I was doing. That all changed with a few new challenges and a bunch of new friends.

This program should be used for an athlete whose goal is to run a marathon in the 1:30-2:30 range and has a good running base in the past 8-12 weeks.

I will assume you have not run consistently more than 6 miles and have never completed a half-marathon. I believe running your first half-marathon is a big task which requires dedication and work.

After you have established the Ironman goal, the most important factor outside of the training is which race to choose? What is your best sort of course, hilly, rolling, flat?

My training was taking off. I had never felt stronger. I was making bigger strides than I ever had. I was stronger and faster than I had imagined myself ever being.
