    I can’t tell you how much this is helping me stay sane for IM Arizona in 2 weeks. Especially after getting so amped up watching you guys finish on Saturday, I don’t know how I am going to make it without an ulcer from all this nervous energy. And I totally hear you about the cut-off times. I SHOULD be totally fine making them, but yet I think about them constantly and typed them out to tape onto my aerobars.
    Congrats again!! Are you going to get a tattoo? 🙂 I can’t wait to read the rest!

    Can’t wait to hear the rest of your recap! Isn’t it amazing how organized Ironman races are? My husband did Ironman Texas this spring and I was blown away by how they had everything with the bags and bikes down to a science.

    Great pre-race recap so far! All of the pre-race set up stuff looks so intimidating. Before I even knew what an Ironman was, I had no idea there was so much behind-the-scenes stuff to deal with in addition to racing. I’m so glad your family was there to cheer for you as well. Can’t wait to read the race recap!

    Great post! So excited to read the rest. You are such an inspiration! 🙂 🙂 Also, I have always been curious about the recovery process after an Ironman. It would be interesting to eventually hear about that too, if possible. 🙂

    While I certainly can’t relate entirely, I feel like I more or less understand your concerns about the weather. I ran the Chicago Marathon for the first time this year (it was my first marathon), and early on in the week they were predicting thunderstorms for race day. I have never been more stressed in my entire life. I was so scared they’d cancel the race and I would’ve gone through all that training for nothing. I imagine those feelings would be 2039485234 times worse if I were staring down an Ironman! I’m excited to read more about your race! I’m so proud of you and inspired by you!
