When I first got the idea to do a triathlon, my bucket list item was a half Ironman. The thought of doing a Full Ironman seemed ridiculous. Well, just the marathon part. But after a few weeks of tri training, I started thinking I might be selling myself short if I didn’t do a Full. Then, in a moment of weakness, I let a friend of mine talk me into registering for Ironman Texas. Ugh.
P.S. Lloyd makes you run the morning after an Ironman. The level of guilt and fear that he uses to do this is cross between a Jewish mother and a doomsday prepper- if you run, you will be able to walk normal during the week. If you don’t, you will never be able to walk again and your legs will fall off. I don’t know if your legs will fall off if you don’t run, but I can confirm that you will be walking normally if you do run. For what it’s worth!
