I am known as SWTrigal or Ironmaiden (team nickname). I am signed up for IMCDA 2008 (gulp). I did IMFL in 2004, the year i turned 50. I SWORE I would never do another one, was pretty burnt out for a year after all the training. Now this year I am back with enthusiasm for the sport again and lot so changes in my life have occurred. My husband and i are taking some time off work so have been able to train without the distractions of a job and it is definitely easier in some ways to train. Am looking forward to following/comparing notes with all you that are doing the race. I think completing IM was one of my biggest accomplishments and I draw on that energy of pushing myself often (I can do that-after all I did an Ironman!). My race season this year has consisted of many sprints, a couple of Olympics, one half IM (Buffalo Springs). i am ending my year with Soma half IM, my husband's first half..
