Call Me Self Centered and Jelous...

After doing an Ironman... I have found it hard yet tempting to watch IM Lake Placid today. It was hard and tempting... call me self centered if you will... because I wanted to be there. The Ironman experience... espcially race day... is something so special... something so unique... it made me jelous. I was jelous of those who got to experience that "rock star" feeling that I did a month ago. It's the neatest experience that one is able to have and I loved it. It brought me to tears to hear Mike Reilly's voice again. I remember his voice from the the whole entire CDA weekend... wow... just wow!

I had my day... but yet it's now almost a month old. The only one who now thinks anything CDA and IM 2008 is me. It will be so long until I till have that day again... and I don't want to wait. I'm trying to look forward to RedMan half this year... and RedMan full next year... and hopefully CDA two years from now but it's hard. I'm still stuck on June 22, 2008.

Is there any cure for this... let me know if there is????

Congrats to Margo and Jimmy... two tri club peeps for completing their first half iron man at Vineman 70.3 :) Oh and Shelley and Brian... I'm looking forward to being out at Lake Placid next summer to support you... if you don't mind me coming... that is :)

More to come...

Its not just you. I can't tell you how many times I have watched the IM CDA video via iTunes and each time I still get a lump in my throat. I am hoping that feeling never goes away.

The cure: You come to IMC and watch this year and then pick up a registration for next year.

See...simple. And heck, Spokane Al is only a few hours drive away as well. A twofer.
