So that’s what an IronMan is…

Spontaneously planned. This past year I’ve learned to take risks and to jump more. It’s honestly been one of the best decisions of my life so far. When you jump… You grow. You adapt. You learn.

My friend, Tarah, “jumped” last weekend.

She competed in an IronMan triathlon in Sonoma County, CA. It was truly insanity at its finest. Any person who competes in this gets a “kick-ass” card because I’m still trying to wrap my head around how our bodies can physically handle it.

She started with swimming in the Russian River at 7:30am… For two hours straight.

Hop on your bike… Here goes 7.5 hours of bicycling.

and because that’s too easy…let’s run a FULL 26.6 mile marathon to top it off. How is she smiling?! Insanity! Pure kick-ass insanity!

A lady at at the grocery store was sporting this awesome shirt…the crew I went with all agreed that we were too in fact…exhausted.

She finished 8th in her age group at 8:50pm. Pretty incredible and I couldn’t be more proud of her. I can now add it to my list of things I’ve watched and experienced. Not too mention…hanging out in Sonoma County wasn’t too bad either.;)

Best part of the trip? The driver taking the wrong turn which lead us right into San Francisco just In time for the sunset.
