The Magic of 18 Finishes

Great morning everyone, Laura here!
Gerald asked me to share some things on the call this morning and I wanted to discuss “The Magic of 18 Finishes.”
So what does that mean?
It refers to a specific situation that I was in a few months ago and I’ll share that in just a little bit.
As many of you know, I am currently training for my very first IRONMAN triathlon with the ultimate goal of qualifying for the World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii in October of 2019—the year I turn 40.
An IRONMAN triathlon is an event that encompasses 3 disciplines… swimming, biking, and running… the event itself is a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mile run… also known as a marathon.
I did not anticipate that this endeavor would be an easy one.
I’ve always considered myself to be athletic but I knew I wanted to give myself a challenge as I approached my 40th birthday… something to get me in shape, something to commit to, and something I would have to work hard and push myself to achieve.
