Boise Bound

I am off today to Potato Country for Ironman Boise 70.3.

My last trip to Idaho went pretty well, so I am hoping the great state will treat me kindly again.

Really, given my training of late, I am not exactly sure what to expect from this race. Coach Dirkinator has a "Grand Plan" in his head that I know doesn't include having me at my best for this race, but I think that is in fact, part of the plan. Judging by the directions he has given me as far as race strategy for Saturday, that thought is seeming right on.

It shall be interesting. Another chance to mix it up with the big boys (at least as long as I can hold on).



  1. Have a great time Ian!! Sometimes when we don't expect much from a race because we are tired or training through - sometimes those races end up the best!! :) I'll be cheering for you!

  2. good luck in Boise, from your last post it sounds like the work has been put in! Time to enjoy some Potatoes ;)

  3. Have a great race! Everyone loves potatoes. And everyone knows the best potatoes are Idaho potatoes. (I don't know what that has to do with triathlon, but I like potatoes.)
