Registration for the Vineman Half Ironman opened last night at midnight. I stayed up way past my bedtime to make sure I could get a spot in the race. I'm registered! I'm in! I'm going to do a half Iron Man.
Here's the funny part. As I got into bed, Steve asked if I was registered. I giddily told him yes, I was. And then I asked, "Hey, should I register you too?" After some discussion, he decided he'd register too. Steve's reserving the right to pull out by the March deadline. His training goals for next year were focused on endurance cycling. He'll need to see how triathlon training fits into the mix, but if he decides to go for it, he's got a spot in the race.
I'm in! And I've got a training buddy!
