Right now, all I can say is WOW!
I have so much to blog about and so many pictures to share I almost do not know how or where to begin. With that being said, I am going to give you a teaser about the Ironman 70.3 Switzerland. It is very humbling to go to a different country to do a race. I experienced that last year when I went to Mexico and did the Cancun 70.3 race. In a foreign venue, you really come to appreciate all that USA Triathlon does for us as athletes and you marvel at how well the host cities and race directors pull out all the stops to put on a great race. This was by far the MOST CHALLENGING triathlon race course I have ever completed and the ABSOLUTE TOUGHEST bike course I have ever ridden, hands down. There is nowhere in Texas, let alone in a 1000 mile radius from Houston, that I could have ever gone out and done a ride on roads that would have been similar in grade and length to be prepared for this race. I will upload some cool stuff in my race report and hopefully you can get a good idea of what was running through my head and spewing out of my mouth when I came around some of these corners on the bike course.
