Reliving the Moment

The Ironman Canada video has been released – and I’m in it!  Look for me just after the 5:30 mark.  It is really hard to believe that it is done…that I did it.  It all seems so surreal looking back now.

I know a lot of my friends are getting antsy and plenty are contemplating another IM next year.  For me, I haven’t hit that.  I’ve been enjoying my time relaxing.  I figure next week I may start some easy runs but I’m off formal coaching for September.  I know that I need to give my body and brain some time to recover before jumping into marathon training in October. 

I also got a chance to see some of the professional pics from the day.  Here they are…and then I think the book on Ironman Canada 2010 has been officially closed!

Thanks again for all of the congratulations on the engagement.  We are definitely excited!  What a couple of weeks it has been.  Unbelievable!60069-477-007f60069-182-024f60069-268-020f60069-892-036f60069-592-015f60069-920-012f60069-881-026f60069-440-033f60069-336-022f60069-204-016f60069-400-008f

you don't have to close the book yet, i'm not tired of hearing about it!

and you know you have a good guy if he proposed AFTER putting up with crazy IM training ;)

Saw you in the video, cool! I got tears in my eyes watching it. In some ways, even with the medal, and the swag, and the finisher photos, in some ways it still doesn't seem quite real. I expected to be a hobbling bag of knackered protoplasm, but I'm actually feeling pretty good. Not up to training for a marathon, like you. Way to go!

Oh, and congrats on the engagement!
