    I can’t imagine trying to get ready for HLS, plan a wedding, AND train for races all at the same time. You must be run ragged, girl!

    Wow, her story is amazing! I can’t believe she finished (or almost finished) 5 full Ironmans. What a great role model to have on your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

    I work for Endurance Nation and know it has helped TONS of people, of all sorts of athletic ability finish half and full Ironman races literally around the world.

    Why title this “Five-Time Iron(wo)man” if she’s only completed four Ironmans?

      Because, in my eyes, she’s come close enough to 5 to claim it as her own. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow to all your hard work you put into hls! Out of the original founding members, are you the only one that still plans it? Who is on your team? Good luck in the homestretch!! I know this is when it gets crazy!!!

      I’m the only one who is still actively planning it out of the original 5. One stopped blogging, two had babies this summer, and the last is very busy. I’ve partnered with HealthyLivingBlogs.com for this year’s event.

        That’s kind of sad to hear, but glad you’ve kept the tradition alive! I loved reading about it years ago..

        but i’m sorry, i’m confused…. weren’t the “originals” jenna webber {she still actively blogs and is an author!}, i assume you mean caitlin had a baby, kath is HAVING a baby, and i guess tina is too busy?

        anyway, glad you’re still doing it.. do they still attend and support you in keeping the tradition alive?

        kudos to you!

        Yes, Jenna bowed out after the first summit, Caitlin had a baby, Kath is having one (any day now!), Heather stopped blogging last Fall, and Tina is very busy. Tina will be there, and the others are still very supportive of the summit and have been a huge help bouncing ideas off during the process. We’re still a close knit of friends who email each other and gchat pretty regularly.

    This was a very cool interview. I loved hearing that the swim was the most work for Jennifer because it’s definitely the most work for me!

    This is a cool interview, but there are SO many typos in her answers. It distracts from what she says and I had a hard time getting through it.

    After watching my husband complete his first sprint tri this summer, two very good friends complete half IMs, and reading this post, I’m feeling incredibly inspired to start working toward a triathlon next summer! The thought of accomplishing three physically and mentally demanding events in one day is really intimidating, but the thought of finishing far outweighs the negatives at this point!

      You can do it!!! It’s hard work, but once you cross that finish line and accomplish your goals, it makes everything worth it. Nothing beats that feeling!

    Great interview! I love her advice… A full IM in 2013? That would be AMAZING!
