Ironman in a week


The signs are up downtown, welcoming triathletes to Raleigh.  The site of a 70.3 adventure from Jordan Lake to Raleigh.  What an incredible time we are going to have.  My relay team, that is.

The race starts at a lake south of Raleigh.  A popular recreational area, Jordan Lake I’m sure is crawling with beach goers, swimmers, boaters and water skiers today, this Memorial Day.  The weather has been just perfect all weekend, and to cap it off with a trip to the Lake would be a fantastic way to celebrate our armed services, past, present and future.  This coming Sunday, the swimmers will take their marks to start off the race.

Following the 1.2 mile swim, the bike transition, and 56 miles along the beautiful roads of Chatham and Wake Counties heading into Raleigh.

Then I will take my turn and run 13.1 miles in the city to finish.  I am very excited, and can’t wait to compete in an a Ironman competition.


Have a great Memorial Day!  Relax and celebrate.
