So, while I was in an ice cream stupor, I spent a lot of time online....

Looking at races....

SO many races. They are awesome. I want to do ALL of them.

I went to far as to send my coach a long email about how I was going to fit a LONG swim race in between my next two Ironmans which are already only 11 weeks apart.


That didn't work. I can't do everything and expect to do it well. And I want to do it well too.

Back to training.

Also, I realized yesterday that training for an Ironman in July in Atlanta means a lot of miserably hot running. I announced that I do not like running in Atlanta in July. I hope everyone heard me!

My other issue is that I want to do at least one HUGE race next year. 1oo mile run or a marathon swim or maybe I will hopscotch across America. I don't know.


I don't know. I don't have to decide yet...but I am excited about the possibilities of planning another season since this one is planned and I am in the heat of it (have I mentioned that it's hot?)

And you know what, it is a lot more fun to try to plan those huge things than to look Rev3 Cedar Point in the eyes and know that I am going to be doing my third Ironman 6 weeks from Sunday.

I am doing my workout, but I am dreaming about swimming the English Channel while I am doing them.

Might just be because it is so hot.


  1. You're hooked on this going long stuff aren't you?! And there's nothing better than running the hills in ATL in the hot and humid air; what are you talking about?

  2. I love long distance too!! I also love the hopscotch across America idea! ha ha English Channel?? That one isn't on my radar, but if you do it I am totally right behind you in that little boat cheering you on!

  3. I definitely think you should hopscotch across the country... that would be awesome!

    Looking forward to meeting you in CP!
