Call me crazy, call me nuts, but you will be calling me IRONMAN again! Just signed up for Louisville Ironman again. The date is Aug 26, 2012. Just under 9 months till the race & training has started. Well, sort of. Hiring a coach & starting with him & his 1st thing is to lose another 20 lbs. Have already lost 20 lbs since the start of 2011. Also added another teammate for this one. Elizabeth Eaken is doing it again (going for her 3rd IM) & RaeAnn Mellencamp has joined us for her 1st IM.
2011 was a great racing year for me & I was ready to add to it in 2012. Did my fastest 5k in 7 years, fastest half marathon in 7 years, set PR's in 10K, 15K, & full marathon. Also did a sprint, olympic, & half Ironman triathlons, & a duathlon (run, bike, run). Also finished 3rd in 35-39 age group for the year in the www.crossroadsofindiana.com race series.
Planning a GREAT 2012 year. Follow along as I post all the fun times!
