A Journey Begins

November 9th, 2012

Well, I did it – I signed up for the 2013 Florida Ironman! Which, even that proved challenging. The 2012 IM sold out in 16 minutes, so I knew this one was going to be quick as well. Sunday morning I was sitting at my computer frantically refreshing the registration page. Good thing, it turns out, as the 2013 IM sold out in under a minute. Whew. Now that I’ve got that out of the way, it’s all easy from here, right? :)


With Lauren’s birthday on Monday, I got a late start on the training plan. In fact, I didn’t do any physical activity until this morning. Which was a pretty¬†successful¬†run, and I’m proud of myself for being able to wake up at 5 am and run in temps in the mid-30′s. I guess it’s only going to get colder from here, but as I hate treadmills, it’s the lesser of two evils.


I haven’t yet put together the full training plan, but I know long runs will be Sundays and long bike rides will be Saturday. I’m not very excited about riding my bike in the morning in winter, but getting to 56 miles by May is going to be tough if I wait for nicer weather.
