Well… I’m in Arizona. I’m here to volunteer for Ironman this year so I can register for the race next year. (Volunteers get to register before online registration opens and I wasn’t taking any chances that I wouldn’t get to register). I was feeling a bit emotional about the trip yesterday and found myself getting a bit teary thinking about what was coming.
Signing up for the race is kind of a big step for me. I still find it unbelievable that just a few years ago I never swam, biked or ran. I know it’s still a year away, but I’ll be signing up for something I’ve thought about and planned for for a long time. It’s also marks the start of a year of more swimming, biking and running than I’ve ever done. It’s going to take time, dedication and a lot of hard work to get me back out here (in racing condition) but I’m getting excited to take the next step and actually sign up for the race!
