Congrats Great job on finishing your first Ironman.

Granted you're going to find Ironman is like a bag of potato chips you can't have just one....

Those are some great photos. I can only imagine how much preparation goes into an Ironman... it's bad enough for a Sprint Triathlon! LOL

Wes said...

LOL... preparation is half the battle. The rest is execution :-) Well done!!
