I always said that after I ran the NYC Marathon that I would be finished running marathons. Of course that is not true, but I have been unsure about what I want to do in 2012. I have waffled back and forth with a few options.
The other day I was looking at Ironman triathlons and for some reason noticed that Ironman Kentucky still has spots available for 2012. I was a little shocked, but also know that it is the least popular Ironman due to the hills and the heat. I thought too bad I did not think of this back in August, or I would sign up. I started doing the math on how many months it gives me to train. Exactly nine. Hmm....
I thought about it all week, wondering if it was something I was really interested in doing or not. It still sounded appealing to me over the weekend, so I brought it up to Ken on the way home from St. Louis. He asked me a few questions about the training, mainly if I could handle it. I told him I know I can do it, I just need to commit to it. He told me to go for it but only if I go all out. No half assing it.
And with that, I have just registered myself for Ironman Louisville on August 26, 2012. It took me a moment to hit submit. I walked back to our copy room feeling a little panicked and the girls told me I can do it. Signing up is the hard part right?
So here we go. I have nine months to turn myself into an Ironman. Is it bad that I am already thinking about what cute outfit to wear during the run?
