First the Beach, then the Battleship…

So I wrote this post back in August 2012, about signing up for a crazy race, Ironman Coeur d’Alene.  That decision was crazy.  But it was also a great idea born out of crazy… and an amazing journey.

When I stop and write a post like I did the other day, I really had to think about what in the world was going on.  When I know I am getting stronger, but struggling mentally.

After discussing these things with the Expert (who is planning on Ironman Chattanooga in 2015, and Beach 2 Battleship in Wilmington, NC–the half this year)… he and I knew that it was time.  Especially when, the other night, I was actually resting  a plate of pizza on my belly, in my reclining chair


Whoa, nelly.  Time to focus.

Time for me to make another crazy leap.

My poor Coach Brett.  He had a heart attack.  Not to mention that he told me “no” a few weeks ago.

Me:  “Can I register for…”

Him: “Nooooooooo.”  (Although there may have been more “o”s than that.)

Then when I told him what I had done, he said I was just like one of his children.  Disobedient.

(“But cute,” I thought.  Heh heh..) 🙂

This morning, I registered the Expert for his half at Beach 2 Battleship.

Then I registered myself…

…for not  the half.


Family meeting, Expert on board and ready to train his way to IMChoo 2015 with me, and a job situation that is going to be awesome.

I am so excited to get back in the saddle, and reach reach reach…for another big goal.

Let’s go. It’s the final date on the 2014 Race Tour. October 25, 2014.
