Doing an Ironman for so many hours of your life is a very special (and, I’ll admit CRAZY as well) experience. There’s LOTS of time to think during those hours.
The journey included learning to swim in less than a year; riding straight into a mountain in California; climbing Mt Fig; whining about workouts; getting on the wrong Megabus; peeing my bike for the first time; fitting life and my career into training; and keeping life balanced in a fresh, but important and special, loving relationship.
I learned that ANYthing really IS possible after I endured what I did on Sunday. The smile on my face during the last trek around the Capitol in Madison was HUGE!!!
Then, once I started my descent to the finish line, I started to BALL tears of absolute joy and accomplishment!!!
KEN CHIN OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS… YOU ARE AN IRONMAN TODAY!!!
WOW! I’m an Ironman…
