Celebrating 5 years of Ironman participation

Ironman Races

140.6 miles – that’s the total distance in an Ironman Triathlon.  How do you reach that distance?  Here’s how:

2.4 miles swimming

112 miles cycling

26.2 miles running

While most people are familiar with the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii every year, you might not know that there are Ironman distance events throughout the US (and overseas) every year.  Many of these races are qualifiers for Hawaii.

So, how on earth did I decide to do my first Ironman race in Lake Placid, NY in 2008, my next in Madison, WI in 2009, and the latest Ironman Canada in August 2011?  Read more about my strange decision process and subsequent addiction.
