I’m in Arizona

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!

    Amy, I recently read “You Are an Ironman,” and a lot of volunteers secured their spots by volunteering the year before–great idea! Volunteering is such a rewarding and humbling experience. I found myself getting so emotional when I lent a hand during the Syracuse 70.3. As triathletes, we know how much dedication, training, and hard work it takes to complete a 70.3 or 140.6–how can we not become emotional watching people realize their dreams? You are so ready to sign up for and take on IMAZ!
