Ironman Bug

It has taken me 8 years but I think I am ready to dive in again. When I was 40 I did an ironman, or tried. Some poor guy drowned on the swim, so we ended up doing about 80% of an ironman. At any rate after that I decided I was done. Now that I am looking real close to 50 I am ready for round two.

Today I actually found the perfect one. It is Cozumel Mexico. Close and a good time of the year. The only problem is it will be a few days before my 50 birthday so I will be in the younguns age group. Not that it makes any difference. I just want to finish a dang Ironman.

So next week it is off to the pool I go. I only have about one year and 10 months to get ready for this baby!

Actually with the current rules you will race all year at the age you will be on Dec 31st of that year. So you will race in the 50-54 category.

Thanks for input. I did not know about that age group rule. I probably should check out any rules that have been changed in the last 8 years :)
Bree I read your blog about Cozumel, that helped me decide on doing it, thanks for sharing.
