And I am going through a mess of emotions right now.
I did it. I hit the send button this morning. Now I am in shock. I really did hit the button.
I am registered for the Ironman 70.3 here in Florida at Disney. May 16, 2010. I still have the Disney Marathon 26.2 in Jan. I can not wait for. But I did it.
I have a duathlon this Sunday. It's in Miami and I know what to expect. Then I have to do 2 more Duathlons, to get my bonus points and the series award. Then in October the last race of the season will be my first triathlon. Then season will not be back till Feb.2010.
I have made a decision on my next long distance race. I am going to stay close to home and do the half here in Nov. I want the WDW full marathon to be my first marathon of many after to come.
Now this Ironman is a Qualifier for the Clearwater ,FL.Full Ironman, and once I complete the 70.3 at Disney without getting swept, I can get a lottery number and try for Kona.
I got me a new pair of running shoes. Yep. I got a pair of Newtons. They cost a bit more than my other ones but Man oh Man they are awesome. Light weight shoe and I did not pound the you know what out of my feet. And I shaved off 3 minutes on my last 4 miler. E was so excited I was able to go father ,longer and a bit faster. I was too. I don't heel strike, I am on my ball of my foot.
SO as the months melt away to the marathon weekend, I will post alot more on the race and the track and the times and all that fun stuff.
Value resort reservations will be set in Late Sept. for Marathon weekend,AND we plan on staying at Fort Wilderness for the Ironman. Holy Cats!!!!
