I am a new club member. Earlier this year I ran my first Half Marathon. I thought that going from a Half Marathon to a Half Ironman, is a reasonable idea… well here goes…
I have done it.
Almost 6 months of preparation came together on Saturday May 22nd, 2004. At 7:00am I stood on the shore of lake Folsom (water temp 64F), with 1,000 other triathlets for the beginning of CaliMan - Half Ironman Distance Triathlon. This was going to be a long day, 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile biking and Half Marathon (13.1 mile) running.
1.2M Swim, 56M Bike, 13.1M Run
