I'm on TV this Saturday!!!!! Well...put it this way...the Ironman 70.3 World Championship race from last November is on TV...and I was there...as an athlete...competing.
Now, I certainly wasn't one of the profiled leaders and I wasn't one of the dramatic human interest stories. Hell, I probably shouldn't really have been there in the first place, but there I was. I know they will be featuring the likes of 76 year old Sister Madonna (a nun who still races). I think she was one of the few people I actually beat out of the water. They will also feature Rudy Garcia-Tolson and the awesome Sarah Reinertsen, both of which are physically challenged amputees competing in Ironman distance triathlons. If I make the TV screen at all, it will be when those two are on screen as I seemed to spend a lot of my time around them. Funny and inspiring all at the same time.
Make sure you TiVo the race for a little inspiration. I was the chick in the back of the pack!
