Comment: "Fiona Longden, You are an Ironman"

Fiona you are one very courageous lady. It was exhilerating to watch you race last weekend. I was exhausted just watching! I see that you have entered for next year so good luck with that and well done for taking on the challenge to better your time. Having seen how quickly the body can break down in the final stages of the marathon was a real eye-opener for me and it amazes me that so many people go back and do it to themselves for a second time, and some for numerous times! We are surround with so many experienced Ironmen and ladies, and it stikes me now how easy it can be to underestimate what's involved to finish that race. The mental tenacity to keep going must be excruciating if you're in pain. So, to you Fiona and to all people who do Ironman, you are incredible. I can't say I'm inspired sorry, but I am in awe of your courage. Well done, and thank you so much for sharing this journey with the readers of TriathlonOz. Please keep blogging!
Some wish for it, others work for it!
