Ironman St. George 2012

Tomorrow I'll be headed on a lil' road trip to St. George, Utah. My good friend Nick will be competing in the Ironman triathlon. (Just writing that gives me butterflies!) When he first told me he had signed up I was shocked. Now don't get me wrong, he is the kinda guy who is pretty much good at anything he does, but the Ironman? That's just insane. If your not familiar, let me break it down for consists of a 2.4 mile swim, then a 112 mile bike and as if that's not enough, a 26.2 mile run to finish. So for the past 9 months his life has been consumed by an intense training schedule and he has made endless sacrifices to make it to this point. I couldn't be more excited to cheer him on from the sidelines and I'm so so proud of him! It's truly inspiring to see someone who is so dedicated to achieving a goal.

Good luck Nick. No matter the outcome of this weekend you've already done something that most would never dream of and that's a victory in itself.

Here's some Ironman inspiration for you all.
