June 23, 2013 will be my first full Ironman triathlon:

2.4-mile swim
112-mile bike
26.2-mile run

I’ve never biked more than 100 miles in one day.
I’ve never run more than 20.

It seems crazy to do all three back-to-back. Maybe it is. But I want to do it anyway.

I’m fortunate enough to have a coach who caters to my work schedule (nightshifts, weekends, 12-hour days, you name it). I’m also incredibly thankful for my friends and training partners who keep me going when the going gets tough.

Here’s to doing something crazy!
