When they say, “life is like a box of chocolates”, what they really mean is, “life is like a box of luck events disguised as chocolates”. It was not bad luck though. My approach to the box was just too aggressive.
Madison, WI presented Ironman Wisconsin to me – and to other 3,000 athletes – as the third toughest course in America. Race week for me started Thursday with expo work at the Compressport booth throughout the weekend which is always a great joy to do and way to meet other tri-freaks. I also enjoy having something to keep my head busy and not over think about the race. I could write a novel about the race but I’ll cut to the chase.
