First for all – HUGE congratulations are in order. Congrats to all of you Ironman Wisconsin finishers! I am incredibly inspired. Shout out to my BFF Lisa who rocked her best Age Group finish (8th!). She continues to defy all odds getting faster and faster every year.
And then our good friend Sean qualified for Kona on his first attempt at the Ironman –while completing his residency…who does that?

The days since Leadville 100 have flown by in a blur. The incredible experience seems to have left a mark on me in a familiar kind of way. Over my many years of endurance racing I’ve learned that epic races like Leadville seem to drain my well of motivation and mental energy beyond what I can ever imagine. Yes, I’ve spent the last 4 weeks debating my existence in this world and probably annoying the hell out of Tom :) Much like the famous Ironman Blues, these big races always leave me thinking “now what?”
