so i’m headed to the great white north, ok seriously it is probably warmer there than it is in seattle right now. i’m going up to ironman canada to cheer on a whole slew of people - i have about five friends all doing the race and it’s is a first for all of them. i am pretty excited for all of them and there are a ton of us going up to cheer them on and some are volunteering during the race too. it is pretty awesome how many people are going up there - it is one of the reasons i keep doing team in training - the people you meet there are pretty special. there is something about the tri teams that are pretty amazing, it could be the meeting 3x a week for at 5-7 months in the middle of the winter to train in the rain and cold or that triathletes are just a little different than the average person, but i gotta say i have met some of the most amazing people in my time with team in training and it keeps bringing me back year after year.
i’m also pretty stoked to go witness my first ironman event! i just can’t wait and to be able to be there for my friends - i just feel lucky. i’m still sitting on the fence with what year i’ll do my ironman - will it be 2013 or 2014?
