Ironman Arizona

So…I’m an IronMATE (check out that picture). How fun. Charlie brought this home after he’d gotten his race stuff picked up.

I was so excited to wear that at the Ironman event.

It fits in with my writing when it comes to mates and things. I talk about that a lot in the stories I write.

And it’s true, Charlie’s my fated mate, so it was fitting.

We had SUCH A blast at the all day event.

Swimming 2.4 miles

Biking 112 miles

Running 26.2

I can only say one thing:

Thank GOD it wasn’t me doing it.

Charlie did great.

He finished in 10 hours and 39 minutes which landed him 37th in his age group (out of 400) and 237 overall (2600 entrants)

He trained so hard for the last 10 months. So I’m glad he did better than he’d expected!

Here are some pictures.

This event was for you, Lynn Boeyink (2/2/48-10/24/11)
