Here Comes That Funny Feeling Again

Well, I did it. I just registered for a Half Ironman in September. (See New Year's resolutions)

I am not where I want to be in terms of training but "le feu sous mon derriere" has just been ignited. (Fire under my butt)

This is definitely taking me outside of my comfort zone. I guess that is the point, n'est-ce-pas? But that funny feeling is so, er, uncomfortable!

The only solace is that I think I'm going to do a 1/3 Ironman in early August, back out at Mattoon IL. This year should be way better since I'll be driving a car that has AC.

Your drive and determination are truly awe inspiring. I have every confidence you will prove to be a total and complete success in your first ironman.

Keep up the great work!

Merci K!

Though, since this is a half Iron, I won't be able to say Ironman.

Maybe AluminumMan: not as strong as Iron but lighter and easier to work with.
