Ironman has to be the most inspiring athletic event that there is. Where else can people from 18-81+ be competing for 17 straight hours?! That's impressive, I don't care who you are. This past week definitely made me thankful, happy and excited that I signed up for my own little piece of Ironman. CdA, June 2012. Can't wait!

It's a little daunting to think about it, but after watching the World Championships, I'm inspired. It was awesome to be at the event and know a few people that were racing and every time each and every one of them, ran past us on the side of the road they all had a huge smile on their faces. I know it couldn't have been all smiles for them all day long, Ironman is a loooooooooong day, but I never once saw any of them looking like they were struggling...kudos to Leslie, Claire, Rachel, Michelle, Nalani, Emily, Lindsay congrats on your finishes!

Here's a few pictures to recap the week.

Michelle (I think I caught you mid-sip, but I swear you were smiling right after)

Sorry about the sideways pictures, I can't seem to figure it out tonight...I'll try not to let it happen again
Check out all those smiles!!!
Great job ladies!!
