This is how you make the best decisions.
My family and I decided to take a trip to Mcallen, Texas on 2013. We needed to buy some sports clothes… well it’s not like we needed to, they’re just never enough. So on our way back home, picture the mood: good music, telling past adventures, family, pure happiness. My brother all of the sudden said “We should do a half Ironman” you must know that my family isn’t characterized for being a normal one -as I said before I’ve been having this lifestyle since I was 5 – We all screamed YES WE SHOULD!! my brother took out his smartphone and began to search for the best option to do our first 70.3 Ironman.
Right after we decided that THE ONE was 70.3 Austin, I called my boyfriend. When I got home he was already there to help us register, imagine his excitement.
The journey wasn’t easy but it sure was fun. The four of us training for an 70.3, definately is not something you see everyday. Balancing school, work and training wasn’t easy. The good thing is that I have an Ironman boyfriend so training became our date.
The hardest part of training for an Ironman is preparing your mind -specially if you’re going to race without music! hahaha- So it began, the most amazing journey of all times. I’ll get to that later.
