“YES!! I get to go fit in a practice swim now!” I knew that we were under a small craft advisory for at least another hour or so and just prayed that the water wouldn’t drown me.
I made sure to spend enough time in Transition 2 in order to be ready for the upcoming 26.2 mile run. I was just a marathon away from this crazy dream. No stopping now!
The next morning I woke up and reflected on the accomplishment. My favorite thing to say for a week after was whenever anyone said, “Hi, how are you?” I would respond with, “Hi, I’m and Ironman” and then I would start to laugh. I guess being delirious went far beyond just the day of the race.
