Ironmen, yet again!

Many hearty congratulations to my Maramarc and TriGirl friends who completed Ironman Brazil this weekend! They endured a brutal swim, with some strong currents, and hillier than advertised run--and at least two of them PR'd. My very good friend, and usual training buddy, Lynn broke her first IM record by a hour and 40 minutes.

I am in awe of these people who trained all winter, riding mostly indoors on trainers. Their dedication, tenacity, and ability are such an inspiration to me, especially Karen, Shelley, Susie, and Lynn who had finished IMFL just 6 months earlier. I am so proud to train with them, and call them friends.

YOU GUYS ROCK! Love and many hugs,
ko
