    I’ve always told myself that I could never complete a race like this, but it is beyond inspiring to hear you say it’s possible!

    I have HUGE Ironman dreams after completing my first sprint tri just a month ago. I loved reading this! The only Ironman blogs I can find are of the pros, and they make it seem so unattainable. But this made me really feel like it’s something I can do. Thank you!

      You so can do it….and I know what you mean! Chrissie Wellington is super inspiring, but I am nowhere near that fast πŸ˜›

    Awesome post! My goal is to be an iron(wo)man before I’m 30, so that gives me 1 year at each distance. Thanks for all the tips, I’ll definitely be using these.

    These are awesome tips!! I am going to do a half ironman next year, so this made me even more stoked! Wheeeee πŸ™‚ I’ve done a sprint tri, 2 marathons and some half marathons, so I kind of know a bit….but I definitely need a plan. Good point!

    WOW! I am so impressed. I don’t think it ever crossed my mind what the distance of an Iron Man was! In college we did a “mini triathlon” for softball training. I think we swam .1 mile and it felt like FOREVER ha, but it was so much fun! I would absolutely consider doing a sprint or olympic triathlon.

    I really enjoyed this post!

    Thanks everyone-I had fun writing it πŸ™‚ Bottom line-don’t be intimidated. Ironmans are no joke, but are attainable if you put the time in!!
