Ironman World Championships

I got to ride about 20 miles in the Gecko Tri Club room on my bike trainer while we watched the Ironman World Championships on the big screen live this past Saturday. The announcers referred to the many Pro's dropping out as "lots of carnage"... and a truly bizarre race unfolded with lots of unexpected racers coming up from what seemed like nowhere. Anyway, it reminded me that even the pro's are fragile, and the Ironman is so technical and tactical and eventful. My favorite male racer, Jasper Blake, was one of the drop outs, and he wrote a very moving and positive piece on his blog about his race. He is my inspiration this week, and you should check out his blog:
