The End is Near

The cannon for Ironman Cozumel fires in less than 48hrs.

As anyone who has read my blog through the year knows, 2011 has been a up and down year for me from a racing perspective. There have been some highs, but some definite lows as well. Ironman Cozumel will close the books on 2011 and I am looking to do so on a high note.

I have been here since Tuesday and seen much of the course as the ride consists of 3 laps of only 60K and the run is right outside our hotel door. It is flat, but the heat, humidity and wind will CERTAINLY make it a challenge. Maybe an equally grand challenge will be to keep my focus on racing while passing scenery like this:
I mean... come on. Look at that!
But I will do my best to put on the blinders, batten down the hatches and go for it on Sunday.

I want to take a moment to say a big Thank YOU! to all of you who have followed along with my racing and offered such great support all year. It has been a humbling year in many ways, and having been the recipient of so much support from so many has been overwhelming at times.

So Sunday it is. Lets Roll.


  1. RIP IT UP IAN! best of luck to you and enjoy the Mai Tai's post IM, stoked to follow ya

  2. Make this race your bottom bitch!!

  3. Good luck Ian! We'll be cheering from Alabama

  4. I hope that Cozumel is the race result you have been looking for. Enjoy your day. I am sure your hard work will pay off come race day.

  5. I didn't realize Cozumel is a whole day ahead of the rest of the world? Cause today's Friday and in less than 24 hours it will be Saturday :-)

    Good luck on Sunday. Or whenever the race is.

  6. Simply put... You rock Ian, fun to follow your climb this the ranks. That view has nothing on your focus and drive.
