Ok, ok – I say this every year : Ironman , shmironman , over it … And then it get’s to a week out and I just can’t contain my enthusiasm! I am so excited to see so many of you cross the finish line, get to the pinnacle of your achievements and finally ‘knock the b*****d off’ !
Toni (and hubby David), Ivan, Sean, Donna, Chris, Robbie, Mark, John, Ruth, Karen, Ricki, Caroline, David D. , thank you for your dedication and commitment ! I know that at times having your weekly massage would have felt like that extra hour you could have spent training, but I know (and you know ) it has given you the recovery you needed to keep going. WELL DONE to get to this point, go hard and do yourselves proud.
All of the GO2Max crew, Stephen, Vanessa, Anna, Reece, Ryan and everybody else – you are awesome , go get ’em! We will be at the turn around in Riporoa, so go round nice and slow so we can spot you 🙂
And last but not least if you are down there checking out Ironman NZ 2016 , go and see some of the exhibitors at the expo: Jason of Triathletes Corner, Em’s power cookies and of course all the massage providers , who have spent all week down there in the tent, away from their respective clinics to be there.
As every year, I will be down there all over the course, ready to call out your name (though I do avoid the old ‘looking good’ or ‘not far now’ ). This year though , instead of cheering on hubby, he will be right at my side – with a bit of luck halo freshly removed – and envious of every second not spend on the course. Counting down to next year.
Good luck and great racing – and see you on the massage table next week 🙂
Happy massaging as always,
