We finally decided between all of the ironman races for 2012. After watching videos and reading a lot of race reports we decided that Ironman Coeur d’Alene is the best choice for us. So we went online forked over a bunch of money and waved goodbye to our lives for the next ten months.
I am still on injured reserve as my knee is very painful so the focus for the next few months will have to be healing a building strength.
The race will be held on June 24th and that will be our 6th anniversary. We completed our first half ironman this year on our anniversary.
It may not be the most romantic way to spend the day but that’s how we roll.
Any suggestions on how to survive this, while working a full+ time job, keeping up a house, and being a good daughter, sister, wife, friend, boss, coworker, neighbor, pet owner, etc?
Congrats on making the decision! I have a few friends who have done CdA and loved it. Can’t wait to follow your training journey!
