So a week has passed since the New Orleans Half-Ironman. I have had time to contemplate my race and lick my wounds. It has not been easy to think back on all of the things I "wished" I had done, but was not able to execute. I am still pleased with my ability to persevere with the swim (if you can call it that), but I am bummed that I couldn't pull it together to finish in the style I desired. Having said that, it is over and I can't go back, so this will be my last time mentioning it. The question now is where do I go from here? I am still chewing on my options and discussing my future race plans with my coach, but I think it is just a matter of time before I bite off another piece of the ironman and give it another go. I can't go through the rest of my life with a half-done half-ironman. It's not officially been checked off my bucket list, and I still haven't earned my peanut butter shake (long story).
