For all of you who have been listening to the podcast, you know that this was the culminating event of a tough year of training for me.

A year ago around this time, I crossed the finish line in Lake Placid to complete my first Ironman. My “A-Goal” this year was to improve upon that performance, which was a goal I have not chased enthusiastically.

April Tedrow is one amazing lady.

Happy Memorial Day. I know, I know… I said I’d have a podcast out every Sunday and this one didn’t come out until Monday.
