About 8 weeks ago I challenged some peers to do the corporate ironman with me. Each as individuals, doing all 3 disciplines ourselves.
Well, the past 8 weeks have flown and ironman fever has hit Nelson Mandela Bay! With only a few sleeps left one hopes that the training was enough to conquer this milestone. For the avid athlete the corporate ironman probably doesn't conjour much respect, but for my colleagues and myself we have gone from almost ground zero to doing all 3 disciplines. 380m swim - 18km cycle - 4.2km run.
Driving around the city and seeing the ironman branding, road closures and 'infrastructure construction' at the beachfront is so exciting. We welcome many participants, supporters and friends too the bay this week and its truly an honour to be part of ironman South Africa's 10th anniversary.
Good luck to all who are entering and hope to see the rest of you there as supporters!
