Even as the non-athlete this round, I found myself almost more stressed out with everything going on....With blogger meet-ups, trips to the airport, volunteer meetings, and then keeping up with my new role it was crazy busy.
Thursday I was fortunate enough to meet up with several bloggers including: Chloe, Frayed Laces, Kristi, John, Garden Tri, and more. Sooo fun to have to the opportunity to meet new bloggers and catch up with friends. It's crazy how these friendships form! And KC too on race morning...
The sherpa part and coaching part went pretty well overall despite my racer's GI issues from excessive salt water ingestion during the swim. In addition to my support role, I was also fortunate enough to volunteer as a draft marshal thanx to Chloe.
Although sherpa-ing and volunteering was a blast, I don't think I will be trading my bike in for this anytime soon :)
Congrats everyone who finished you first iron distance race! You deserve it! Thank you for keeping us inspired! And especially to my hubby... who not only completed his first Ironman... but raised $1,748 for the Haitian orphanage Hands and Feet Project.
