I did this on Wednesday…
In case you can’t read that. I registered for my first full Ironman. I decided to go with Chattanooga for a few different reasons. In fact, I made a speadsheet to decide between Chattanooga and Florida. I was initially going to register for Florida but then this opened up and a few friends got me thinking about it. I’m fully aware that it’s very hilly and I’ll need to ride my butt off this next year to prepare. All at once, I’m scared, excited, and exhilarated.
This event sold out in three minutes. I had a feeling it’d go fast but no clue it’d be that fast. Going in, I figured that if I got in it was meant to be. I was shocked when I heard some friends didn’t and hope the registration issues get worked out.
All that being said, it’s going to be an interesting year. I look forward to sharing this experience with you all. Thanks for the support and have a great Monday!
So excited for you! Woohoo! This is going to be so much fun.
YAY!!!! I cannot wait to read this year's blog reports 🙂
One of the most beautiful places in the world. Congrats on the entry. Now all you have to do is train. LOL!
Eeek! Exciting and woah on it being sold out that fast. Can't wait to follow along 🙂
EEEEEEK!!!! That's so exciting!!! Can't wait to read all about your journey to Ironman!!
So excited for you! Cant wait to follow along on your journey. And perhaps put some miles on the bike with you again!? 🙂
Well that right there is some exciting news!
Yay! I'm so excited to see you out there. I found my registration anxiety started to calm down when I was looking at training plans. Getting the plan on paper and seeing the rhythm of the workouts week-over-week will really help. I have a link in the left nav to the Ironman training plan that I used for IMFL, and it worked great.
It's not amazingly hilly out there, but there certainly is more elevation than florida has to train on. Not as bad as Wisconsin or Placid though.
YAY for taking the plunge! I just committed to myself today that I am aiming for IM WI for 2015, need to get a half IM under my belt next year.
Can't wait to hear about your journey!!
You're insane and I love it!! lol I know you're gonna rock it B.S.!! 🙂
Train Healthy Be Wealthy
Cannot wait to cheer you on Boo!
This makes me insanely happy, you're a rockstar and I know you will do awesome! I get to sign up later this year for my first full next year and I think I might have a heart attack while signing up let alone getting to the race! I have a few friends who signed up for this Tennessee one as well, who knows maybe I will be a spectator
Looking forward to reading about your training!!! Hope this convinces me to at least to a sprint Tri one day!!
woot woot! exciting!! hope the registration high lasts you through the hills 🙂
