    I learned the ice bucket trick from one of my roommates at Healthy Living Summit! Definitely a good one, haha although a fridge is better!

    WF is always my go to when I’m traveling. Their salad bar keeps me on track and I can always snag a dessert if I feel like indulging a little. The workout center never works out well for me though. I never feel like I’m getting as good a workout. I need my heavy weights!

    I read the book, and I agree that some parts are really slow. But a part of me appreciated that because training for a race is arduous and tedious and not glamorous. I like that it wasn’t glossed over; the training was the meat of the book. And I loved the end! I’m not even a triathlete, and the book had me wanting to attempt an Ironman! Haha!*

      I actually enjoyed the training parts, but the intro was what got me. He could have glossed over some of the Ironman history and I would have been okay with it. πŸ™‚

    I’m with you, the elliptical comes after running and the bike..my last resort for cardio!

    My favorite meal πŸ™‚ The book sounds interesting. I really think it’s awesome to see everyday people try to compete at that level. Very inspiring!

    Sounds like it might be perfect inspiration for my triathlon training- I know its a totally different scale, but think it sounds really interesting!

    That definitely sounds like a great book to read. πŸ™‚ Way to push it on the elliptical; I’m definitely not a fan, haha.

    Glad you enjoyed the book; I really liked it as well! And I was basically crying while reading the last few chapters. Completing an Ironman takes so much time, training, dedication, and heart–how can we not feel for everyone who attempts to cross the finish line?

      Totally agree. If you need inspiration, just stand at the finish line of an Ironman race from 9:00pm to midnight and try not to tear up.

    Great review. Although I’m not training for an Ironman I probably would like the book. I really enjoy reading about ultra runners too. Of course I have no desire to do that much running. πŸ™‚ Good luck on your triathlon. πŸ™‚

    Those berries look RIDICULOUSLY delicious. I haven’t seen a berry since I moved back to Alaska-what a shame! That’s not to say we don’t have them, just that they’re so far out of my price range I can’t even bear to look…
