This was my 5th Ironman, Madison, Wisconsin.
The question is, will there be 6th in 2017? Currently, I am not registered, but I am open minded on the subject. My wife and I just love that late summer weekend in Madison, WI. We have some a great time, in this hamlet of a city, tucked in the finger hills of Wisconsin.
My goal after my first Ironman has been to maintain a general fitness level that will allow me to participate and complete an Ironman event on any given day. Mind you, I am not saying “win” the event – but just go out and complete it – at an better than average weekend worrior pace. I have found in when I have that event hanging out there, I do a better job of keeping up at that fitness level. So this keeping an open mind regarding 2017 is enough of a basic rationale for helping me keep up my fitness level.
Keep an open mind, keep goals in sight, and find a reason to move further outside your comfort zone! You will surprise yourself what you can do! 🙂
