In 2011 I completed 2 Ironman events. I did Ironman Texas on May 21 and then Ironman Arizona on November 20. One event in a year is crazy for most people - two is even more crazy - insane! IMTX was awesome and I took over an hour off my PR and finished in the top 10 of … Continue reading Two in Twenty-Eleven
