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.
