Just found an amazing blog written by an amazing woman:
Triathlete On Fire
"Every man dies, but not every man truly lives
Do not be dismayed at how long the journey will take. Instead, be thankful and enthusiastic about the one particular step you can take right now.
This is my last post before the Ironman. Sometimes it feels like I should write this blog as a will. haha :) I had a dream that right before the finish line I caught on fire and died right before I crossed. Maybe in a sense the dream is true. Im not just doing this to finish the race, but to prove I am still alive. EM tried to take all my dreams away, and I want them back!
My ESPN feature is going to be shown this Sunday at 11 am and 11 pm and Monday Morning on regular ESPN sportscenter. Kind of fitting to show it during the race actually!! Hopefully I will finish in time to see the 11 pm showing. :)
"There will come a point in the race, when you alone will need to decide. You will need to make a choice. Do you really want it? You will need to decide."
I will admit it.... IM SCARED OUT OF MY MIND... the thought of the unbearable pain Im going to have to endure for up to 17 hours blows my mind. But really, what else is new? I'm in pain constantly, whats a little more?? So on Sunday, from time to time, think of me, and maybe the Ironman angels will look after me and help me along.
All I can do, is do my best.... and hope my best is good enough.
