After the dramatic temperature of 111F of my last Ironman in Coeur d' Alane I faced a fibromyalgia flare up. My knees, neck and hand joints had been in pain, and it seems that the only thing that alleviates me is to workout, I can’t go as fast but can do a decent job. Each day I get stronger, each day the pain leaves my body gradually. The sense of purpose gives me stamina and a great relieve, so I am proud to have finished this race in less time than the one in Coeur d' Alane.
I was blessed to meet notorious people and please forgive me to be short to describe them because each of them will need a full article. This time I had the opportunity have dinner with 4 Ironman legends that had finished all the Ironman of the world. Their words are worth listening, it is a learning experience to share time with them. I appreciate experience and I feel lucky to meet them.
