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.

I hear some of the bike shops will set up aid stations along the bike route on weekends during October and leading up to race day. I'll be on the bike course tomorrow. I'll be parking at the gas station at McDowell and Country Club. Anybody else riding tomorrow?

This should be some good motivation the day before the race.

My goodness this is a quiet thread. I did IMAZ in 2013 and had a great time! My only regret wasn't signing up for it again this year
I will be there this year to volunteer for you guys and sign up for 2015. Have a wonderful time!

I did a 15 mile run last week, a 65 miler on the bike and a 1.5 mile swim, feeling nowhere near ready. The advent of fall temperatures where I have to wear gloves for every ride has really messed with my psyche. gotta move someplace warm or quit doing these fall races.

Often it makes sense to race slower in order to finish faster and at the same time have a more enjoyable Ironman Triathlon experience.

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.
