I'm Offically Crazy!
I don't know what changed over the weekend, if anything changed, but I found myself re-looking at the race website after a little push from a certain chocolate blogger. I was secretly wishing it was closed out already so I would have an excuse to why I wouldn't be racing it in 2012. Sadly when I got on the page the race was still open and my excuse was gone! I proceeded to the registration form and filled out the questions. When I got the question: "Why do you want to be an Ironman?" I stopped and thought....why did I actually want to be an ironman, why would I want to put my body through this? My first reaction to the question is because I'm stupid crazy, but I certainly couldn't write that down. After some more thought I came up with a much better answer that made sense to me and continued to fill out the form. After I input my CC information I called out to Jason: "Is there any reason that I should not do this?" His simply said: "NO!!!!" and I guess that's all I needed as a shut my eyes and clicked on the finial button.
Umm...with that said I have a very long journey ahead of me before I show up on race day, August 26th in Louisville, KY. This race by far will be the biggest test of mental and physical toughness that I ever faced, but I think it's a journey that is worth taking as I cross the finish line in 9 months and here: "Sarah Karpinski, you are an Ironman!"
How was your weekend? Did you go and do anything crazy?
Happy Monday all :)
