WIBA, 2010

Made it there...made it back. Had a ton of fun.


Got some great riding on the hills, had some great fun running on the course and major race flashbacks, and once again, wondered...

HOW did I ever finish that Ironman?

Sometimes I still don't even believe it. But then I remember, and I smile.

The best part about Ironman and my journey to it was all the friends I made, and WIBA really represents that. It was so awesome to see some of these friends...or, people who I like to refer to as part of the Class of 2006.

I didn't take any pictures, because, seriously...with Steve, do you really need to take your own pictures?! So as soon as he shares them with me, I'll share them with you.

But nothing, and I mean NOTHING, was better than getting home and getting a huge hug from Bug followed by snuggles with Bean and smelling baby-shampooed hair.

Tomorrow is a rest day, and I do believe I have earned it, my friends!

But up next for next weekend? I am heading to the Rev3 bike course to give you a PREVIEW! I'm hoping to take lots of pics and give you my take on the course.

For now--bed. Followed by lots of smelly, smelly laundry.

I really really wish I could make it there every year. I too have so many good memories of 2006 and then WIBA 2008. Long live WIBA!

So, is that a Bug hug?

And I so miss the smell of baby shampoo. Superpounce is now all grownupppy and herbal. blech.

And I'm right there with you. I've done three now, and I still don't know how I ever finished any of those Ironmans.

I know, I was thinking the same thing about the course! How the heck did I DOUBLE that (and then some), and put it all together IN ONE DAY? Seems like that was in a previous life, which it sort of was.

It was SO great to see you this weekend! I'm glad we got to ride/run together! See you in a few months!
