If I can find time I am going to run an Olympic and maybe a sprint in April to try it out but if not........ what d'ya do? It won't be hard, will it? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
I, uh, already registered...... before I even owned a speedo or a bike <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> I believe in doing things big or not doing them at all........ <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Or maybe I am just stupid???
Wow. I just registered for a HIM last night, and I'm still scared to death. I did tris last year, and my HIM isn't until Oct.!! You are a brave soul.<br><br>
You do have until August, but you better start training. Most HIM plans are 5 months. Find one and start training. Everyone here is so helpful, so ask all the stupid questions you want (I have asked my fair share).<br><br>
I would definitely sign for at least one sprint and one Oly just to "get your feet wet" before your HIM. Experience REALLY helps in this sport. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">
Funny. DH is now kind of against races that have the word "half" in them. He says, "Why do they have to call it a half marathon? They could make up any other name for it, and I'd run it! Half just sounds pitiful." I think the other way, though. If it has the word "Marathon" or "Ironman" in it, I think it sounds pretty darn cool (at least my non-athletic friends do -- actually, they just think I'm crazy)! Most people's eyes just get really wide when you say anything with the word marathon or Ironman in it.
