Dimity Walks Us through Her Ironman Race

Dimity hugging her coach Bri after the race. Her smile says it all.

Our most epic podcast yet: Dimity tells, in wonderfully recalled detail, about her strong, heroic effort at Ironman Coeur d’Alene. From the 62-degree swim, to the wetsuit strippers, onto her trusty tri-bike Lyle, up hills and down, a chat with a cute guy named Ryan, to the final 26.2-mile run/walk, that starts with searing pain and includes an amazing shift in mental attitude, Dimity shares it all. (And SBS asks about details Dim would have otherwise left out, such as pooping and the changing tent.) And since 140.6 miles takes a while to talk through (let alone swim/bike/run!), this beauty is slightly more than an hour long. Deserving of such a long, tortuous race, the vocab word of this podcast is, “anthropomorphize.”

    Yay, me and my busted toe are famous :) I was very lucky and I didn’t really notice the toe the entire race and I had an 1 hr 53 min PR.

    Great race Dimity :)

    Great podcast! I listened to it on my 7.5 mile pace run, just what I needed. People were probably wondering why I was randomly laughing or crying on the go. You were amazing and what an inspiration, anything is possible if you put your mind to it and just take that first step.
