2011 has been an IRONMAN year for my friends!
It has been bittersweet for me, as I should have progressed with them, but I know my limits with my EDS and I'll get there eventually. It was really awesome though to see so many achieve such awesome goals this year. I spent more time than I care to admit following people on the blackberry on the crappy Ironman tracker (which by the way SUCKS). My friend Kevin had a pretty good tracker http://www.myathletelive.com/index.html but it was difficult with the blackberry and Val had one that would automatically publish her splits to facebook: www.racedaytracker.com.
The year started out with Glenn. Glenn was a shotgun triathlete. He started out shy with a 'oh I don't know' then all of a sudden he's doing several 70.3 and after his first Ironman he's blowing 20+ avg MPH distance bike rides and scheduling ironmans like they're 5Ks! Glenn is truely an IRONMAN! Here he is finishing Ironman Texas in May!
GLENN YOU ARE AN IRONMAN!
Next was Karla who finished a 70.3 Ironman the Rev 3 in Maine in June!
