So, where to start?
The Inaugural Boulder Full Ironman Competition
After finishing in eleven hours and two minutes, I found myself in a medical tent uncertain through which city I had just swam, biked and ran. Once two liters of saline solution were pumped into my body, my husband declared that I had qualified for Kona. As I lay in the medical tent I said, “Look at me right now…does that really sound like a good idea?”
Fast forward to the next day when we attended the award ceremony in Boulder. After the award ceremony, they hold the “Kona Rolldown.” You must decide on the spot whether you want to accept your qualification for the Ironman World Championship in Kona. If you say “No,” your place is offered to the next person in your age group. If you say “Yes,” you are directed to a line with a cash register (So be sure to bring a credit card.). Even though we really had NO room in our October schedule we decided to sign up for Kona.
