This week I let my wife guest author my blog and she takes a humorous look at what it's like to be a spectator at an Ironman. Have a read if you're so inclined. Happy training!

Your wife is awesome writer, captures the day well...posted link in FB!

IM spectating gets easier when kids are older...my kids 15-24 like it or atleast they say they do....they like volunteering and cheering.

Congrats!

I really enjoyed reading that!

My favorite line about cheering for your IM and them not having a clue "And then you learn that you just have to TELL them that you were there and you can actually go for ice cream instead".

Cracked me up .

This is an article about attending my first triathlon (as a spectator - I had never entertained the possibility of actually participating one before!), and how inspiring and motivating I found it.

"Fandom" in triathlon compared to other sports. If you're a sports fan and simply love to follow sport, why pick a sport that may offer a view of the start, the finish and a few moments in between?

I've rested them for 6 weeks, twice. I've had Active Release Therapy, massages, I'm doing Trigger Point, and stretching. Yet, I'm still having issues and can't get above 3 miles.
