Cozumel. This was my final race of the season and I was pretty excited that it was going to be in Cozumel. This would be Ironman #5 in one year and my 5th Ironman ever. A lot had happened in one year! I live and train in Vermont and let’s just say that November in VT is a tough time of year. It’s usually cold, grey and rainy with a bit of snow scattered in but not enough to stick to the ground. Knowing that I was going to be spending a week in warm sunny Mexico kept me focused and motivated. I was feeling so lucky that this had suddenly become my life. I was going to be able to travel to Mexico in November to do what I love and somehow pull off calling it “work”.
