The Reward at the End of the Journey

Thanks to everyone for all of the great comments and supporting me along the way for the last several months of training leading up to this event...It was an unbelievably amazing day that I'll never forget.

Now that this part of the journey has come to an end, I definitely understand a couple of things much more clearly:

1. It's not about the race...the race is the reward for all of the training.

2. Ironman is 80% mental and 20% physical. Those of you who have gone the distance understand that comment. Those that are that are training for your first will understand it soon enough....

I have a long list of thank yous that will rival any oscar awards speech, and probably a longer race report...please be patient....I'll post both in the next few days.

In the meantime, this will have to suffice:

Congratulations Ironman! I agree whole heartedly on the 80/20 thing. You can train the physical part, and from the steady split times you posted, you were solidly trained! The mental makes all the difference in the world! Congratulations!!!!

Love it! I was so glad to see you finish so well. Your time was awesome.

Now I don't ever want to hear you complain about being slow.

EVER.

AGAIN.
