I have taken the plunge and entered the 2017 Barcelona Ironman this coming October.
Having never run a marathon, bought my first set of cleats only recently and being blessed with legs that refuse to float, the big picture stuff suggests that I should have started with something more realistic. But that would be boring... Given a ton of motivation combined with the support of family & friends, the next 6 months will be exhausting, but hopefully worth it. Everything raised will be going to Thrombosis U.K., a fantastic charity working hard in its support of a cause close to my heart.
