In 2010 I completed my first Ironman triathlon, Ironman Cozumel, as part of my 10×10 challenge to complete 10 endurance events and raise $10,000 for Challenged Athletes Foundation. After completing my last event of the year and crossing the finish line in Cozumel after 14 hours 45 minutes I swore I wouldn’t be doing another Ironman.
I guess memory fades with time, the 9 month buildup, the 20+ hours of training a week, the 14+ hours to complete the race…as for 2013 I have signed up for the inaugural Ironman Lake Tahoe, that’s 140.6 miles at over 6000ft in elevation and I plan to raise $6,000 for Challenged Athletes Foundation whilst doing it…my 2013 6k Challenge.
If all goes to plan I’ll complete the Wildflower triathlon (half Ironman) , AMBBR 100 mile cycle ride around Tahoe and Vineman Aqua Bike (2.4 mile swim/112 mile bike) along the way…with a few other events thrown in I’m sure.
