Maybe I should have had a countdown for how long I could wait after an Ironman to sign up for a new race. And that number would have been eight.
Eight days ago, I completed my first Ironman. On the eight day, I signed up to run another marathon.
Surf City, here I come! Again!
Yep, for the third-straight year, I'll be running in Huntington Beach the morning of Super Bowl Sunday. Except this time, I'm gunning for the full marathon and not the half.
There's only one way to improve your running: Running.
I'm going to take the remainder of this week off, and starting this Sunday -- two weeks to the day after Ironman Arizona -- my training resumes with a two-hour run.
Yes, I'm nuts. Yes, I'm addicted.
Yes, I'm going to become a better runner. I'm going to break four hours in a marathon. That's the goal. And then to learn how to channel that into becoming a better Ironman marathoner this June, at Coeur d'Alene, Idaho on June 27.

So many goals, so little time. I've had almost all the rest I can handle. It's time to get back out there!
Besides, Ironman Arizona is soooooo eight days ago!
Up next: Year in review with Coach Gerardo. Not sure when I'll post it next, maybe in the next couple days.
