Ironman Tombstone
Picked this up from Neoprene Wedgie.
$ 695 (USD) for this:
They really should sell this as a tomb stone with the option to place your name on it.
…Note: Neck feeling much better. Haven’t hit the pool yet. Yesterday did an hour on the bike. A mix of big gears. Good to grind a bit.

Ironman Lake Placid Race Report: Part 3 – Where the rubber meets the road I felt the heat right off the run. I started moving. Not sure about the pace. Kept the legs moving and the heart rate low. I was surprised at how good I felt. I wasn’t feeling fresh. Afterall, I just finished a long bike ride. However, my quads weren’t complaining and I was moving steady. A lady behind me...

Ironman Lake Placid Report – Part 2: Race Day I woke up at 3:30 am and did my rountine. Showered, drank my Boost (2 bottles). I also had a cup of coffee. My friend, Len, also came along to Lake Placid. If I am going to have a big day, he will have a bigger day. A great friend he is, he will be my photographer for the day. He already plan to walk outside of the town to get some decent shots...

Ironman Lake Placid Report – Part 1: Pre-race The week leading up to the race I was busy. Afterall this is a BIG race and I want to make sure I have everything ready. I am pretty much packing all my tri and backup gears. Here is my to-do list: i) Get insurance (blue cross) [mon] ()ii) Approve days off (July 23) ()iii) Let everyone (fellowship) i won’t be here on July 22nd [Wed] ()iv)...

Sitting around I am feeling much better. I can get out of the chair and walking the stairs without much pain :o). To summarize Lake Placid: I have never felt closer to God and figure who I am than on race day. Here are two pics from TriEric. This is taken in the first lap of the run. Thanks for him being there and encourage me. I love the pics b/c I am running strong. I don’t even know...

Ironman weekend I just want to say thanks for all your support and encouragement. This weekend has been a blur. I have pieces of what happen. I can say there is a number of times when I think about you guys. I just got home about an hour ago. There is a number of time I got really emotional. The course simply takes a lot out of me. Like: i) From the beginning of the run, someone cheered...

The post before Ironman USA Added: If you are at Lake Placid this Sun, look for me. I will be in an orange jersey, blue bike and black helmet. My number is 280. It’s time to smile and kick butt!! Yesterday, I picked up my bike yesterday from my local bike store. They fixed my gears problem. I rode for 40 min. Switching all the gears and none skipped. Perfect. I was planning to swim but some...

Locked, cocked and ready to rock. Keep this brief. Yesterday I did a 2 hr bike ride and ran outside for 20 min. It was the first time I ran outside since I tore my shoulder. It is amazing what a taper can do for you. I was running in HR 165+ without breathing hard. That is my zone 3-4. Of course, if I run at this heart rate in Ironman, I am going to blow up. My legs felt strong and I felt great...

Taper, numbers and other stuff… i) Tapering is getting to me more than I thought. Last night at prayer meeting, I was not in a good mood. ii) This morning I did a 20 min run on the treadmill before heading off to work (we had a 7:00 am breakfast quarterly meeting). It felt weird. My lower back was aching a bit. I figured that is from the taper too. Note: Shelley posted that when we taper we...
