    No pressure or anything, though.

13.1 Resolutions for 2013: Halfway Point Check-In

13.1 Resolutions for 2013: Halfway Point Check-In

This is the article that ran with our January 2013 newsletter, and since we’re more than halfway through 2013 (!), we thought it would be a good time to check in and see where you all are. 

Resolution, schmesolution. One measly task is so stringent and final: You either succeed or fail. Not for us, thanks; our stress levels are already impressively high.

But 13.1 small assignments for 2013? Feels much more flexible and possible. Like we could taste success regularly (yum!), and use that momentum to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

So here are a few tasks we’d like to task you with in 2013…

Ironman Coeur d’Alene Race Report: Part II

Ironman Coeur d’Alene Race Report: Part II

So when you last left your Ironmother heroine, she was headed out to the hills, hills, hills of Coeur d’Alene with her trusty steed, Lyle. I had 112 miles to ride, and I had three things on my mind:

1. Don’t take the first loop too fast. A huge, common mistake many Ironpeople make, according to Bri, my coach.
2. Eat like a mother. I had to make up for some of the calories I burned on the swim, plus put some in the tank for the upcoming run, when I knew I would not feel super psyched to chow down.
3. Be mentally present in the mile I was in. I know it’s hard to imagine 112 miles can whiz by, but they kind of can…

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

Dimity Walks Us through Her Ironman Race

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…

Ironman Coeur d’Alene Race Report: Part I

Ok, buckle in friends as I tell a tale of the day I like to call the longest, fastest day of my life. Out there for hours and hours, but it went by in a blur. I want to recount the specifics; I was, if nothing else, totally present as I became an Ironmother. Some of the bike miles whizzed by, and I’d like to forget some of the run miles, but I competed with a detailed race report in mind. (I needed something to pass the hours and hours, right?) Enjoy! (Or just scan the pics, like you do with People mag at the grocery check-out.)

Pre-race: Thursday and Friday
I arrived via the friendly skies Spokane, Washington with a posse of Denver people on Thursday afternoon…
