I couldn’t decide what to call this post, so I called it everything that I want, since I’m the boss. I spent the last few days in Wilmington, North Carolina to do some outreach, internal reach, and race part of an Ironman (natch) for PPD. PPD is a clinical trials development company that I’ve raced…
Here’s the race report for the race that wasn’t.
To quote a good friend describing a blessing that took an inordinately and impressively long time: Well, that was a lot.
This Ironman is different. Of course, they’re all different, but for this one, I’M different. In three days, I’ll be among a couple of thousand athletes launching on a 140 mile day for all kinds of reasons.
Race morning broke, and I woke up at my usual race day 4:45 am…… and laid there for another hour and a half.
I told myself I wasn’t going to start walking in the first mile of the Saint George Half Ironman. I lied.
