Ironman gets closer

thanks for posting this . this clip has had a profound effect on my life.

i have been watching that clip for nearly 2 years, usually on a sat night when i question why i am sober, when all my friends are either drunk or stoned off their heads.

"you can quit, and they wont care but you will always know"

this is the single reason i have been cycling around all year with a ton of weight strapped to my bike.

no way im stopping this year.

"this is the ironman"


  • this is a clip of the very race that i dnf'd last year. i think anyone going to france should watch this . its spot on.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTB9PCm7Nw0

    have been looking at you tube videos of ironman events for about the last month!

    they are awesome for inspiration! last night watched the:

    Sian Welch & Wendy Ingraham - The Crawl - 1997

    Phenonemenal! Hopefully wont quite get in that state!

    8 weeks and counting!

    Given that an IM is 9 - 17 hour event, there must be some merit in going right to the back and just waiting five minutes for everyone else to clear off, then swim after them with a patch of water to yourself?
