Ironman 2016?

Amy is signed up for an Olympic distance triathlon in March with TnT. Want to help fight cancer? She’s taking donations at

So what am I doing this year? Well, I wasn’t planning on doing anything, since fund raising for both of us at the same time is difficult. I was thinking of trying to do the Victoria half ironman again next year, since it’ll be my turn 🙂

But then… I heard of an offer that if you do Victoria or Lavaman this year and increase your fund raising amount by $1000, then you can also train with the team for a full ironman! I’m really hoping they do it again next year, because I think that would not only give me enough time to get in shape enough to actually finish an Ironman, but I think I could handle the fund raising then too!

So… Ironman 2016? What do you think?

I also noticed a couple marathons this season, including one on June 13. The fund raising for it is minimal. I’m thinking of joing up for it. I’m not sure about the fund raising on top of what Amy needs to raise for her triathlon, but I’d have a little time to figure that out before I’m committed.

In the mean time, I’ve got several books to look over to think about 2016 🙂

Joe Friel’s “The Triathlete’s Training Bible”
JoeFriel & Gordon Byrn’s “Going Long, Traing for Ironman-Distance Triathlons”
Gale Bernhardt’s “Training Plans for Multisport Athletes”
