Let Ironman Training begin.....




90 miles.....7900 ft of elevation and a great way to kick off "real" Ironman training.  3 months to Ironman.... time to get serious.  I convinced Beth and Liz to come along :)   and we had a grand time....Usual start of the Great Western Loop, onto Descanso and then we keep going... up to Gutay and on to Pine Valley and then the final 1 11 miles up to Mt Laguna!  If Beth was not racing Vineman this weekend we would have continued down the backside and around Cuyamaca to make it 103 miles but we "wimped" out and did an out and back and kept it at 90!


Top of Mt Laguna....most of the climbing is done and we all enjoyed cookies!!! 

You know it is a serious hill climb when it takes 3:45 out and 2:10 back...

Good times, good friends and let the training begin!  The best part of this sport is all the great friends and all the crazy rides we endure together!!!
