It’s two things Tuesday and I’m just not ready…
1) I found out after I signed up for Ironman Lake Tahoe that I might have bitten off more than I could chew. But I trained anyway. With almost 8k feet of climbing and altitude, it was just more than I could handle. I didn’t make the bike cut off. I’m still really disappointed in myself. It hurts so bad to work so hard and have nothing to show for it but your head hung in failure. That is all.
2) I’m enjoying the rest of my time in Tahoe, through Thursday with two of my favorite people. I won’t let Ironman matter. Or I’m trying any way….
It remains one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Once a little more time passes, I may write a half race report. Not now though… I’m just not ready.
