That's because of the heat. The forge is open and the fires are hot. AZ Iron men are not born. They're forged in the desert between June and September. I feel so puny after my long ride or long run. I'm told sometime in September it will all change for the better. It's September. I'm ready for the change. Going to get Gatorskin tires and start riding the bike course on Sunday mornings. Probably listening to Neil Diamond singing "September Morning".

I'm SO glad to hear this. (Not that everyone is feeling the pain), but to hear that I'm not the only one. My runs have been Horrible lately. I feel like I have 10lb weights on each foot.

Thousands of spectators lined the shore and bridges overhead. When the announcer said, “Welcome to the best day of your life,” the possibility was still there for all of us.

It is my opinion that even though everyone else considered her a triathlete, she did not consider herself one. I think she still felt like she had no fitness direction and had given up on triathlon.
