  • An Impulsive Decision about Ironman, Plus a Training Update

    I had my mind 100% made up that my Ironman would be Arizona in November 2015. To me, it wasn’t even a question. I mean, if I was lucky enough to have an Ironman in my own backyard, why would I want to travel somewhere else to do one instead? And then, all of a […]
