I haven't done an Ironman yet, but I'm already registered for TWO!
What's so special about IMMT? My wife is doing it with me! It will be her first Ironman. She has yet to do her first Half-Iron in about a month's time. lol
The course looks pretty tough. Very hilly, steep grades and I'm more nervous about IMMT than IMLP. Regardless, there will obviously need to be some huge commitments on my part to make sure the wife gets to the finish line. That is the most important goal of my day on August 19th 2012!

This definitely throws a wrench in my plans. I was hoping to lay off the full distance and concentrate on being competitive at the 70.3 distance. As much as I would like to qualify for vegas, I have to admit that I probably need another year of experience and building. IMMT leaves me little time to slip in some 70.3's but I am hoping to at least get to one before hand. At this point, my mind is focused on 'just finishing' IMMT. Like I said, I will have to cover for the wife and make sure I show her the support that she has shown me to help get me through my first Ironman. I am a lucky guy!
