This upcoming weekend I’m busy coordinating the volunteers for Calgary’s first Ironman 70.3 so I decided it was time to once again feature an Ironman photo.
The above photo is from the 2008 Lake Placid Ironman. It amazes me how anyone can swim any distance in such crowded waters. For sure a few have taken an arm or foot in the face or elsewhere.
Thanks go to Colin for sharing this photo on Flickr. Be sure to check out the rest of his photostream.

For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep.
Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003.
Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon.
Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.
