Race day is around the corner. It may be your first Ironman Triathlon or your 6th Ironman 70.3 Triathlon. You are STOKED. You have done the training. You have put the time and effort in the pool, on the road and in the running shoes. #BAM, you got this!
It’s RACE DAY!
Gun goes off.
You ROCK the swim.
You get on the bike. Your nutrition is like a the “buffet” line and you grab what is on the course. Bike is finished.
The run is your thang or so you thought. Body isn’t feeling good. You want to throw up but you opt to walk instead.
You crossed that finish line but super disappointed.
