Till I Collapse

First off, the song "Till I Collapse" is one of my FAVORITE songs on my iPod (along with Lose Yourself), as they both have gotten me some grueling treadmill runs and a few hardcore weights sessions.
Good stuff to be motivated by...

Secondly, not that I will ever do an Ironman, because honestly I dont think I would ever be able to swim 2.4 miles in whatever the cutoff time is...I think 2hours and something...still, I watch all the Ironmans as they are tape delayed on Universal Sports Channel through my cable...I love to watch and am infatuated and yes watching them, even though I may just be a runner, a cyclist from time to time and yes, even a swimmer as it pertains to Sprint triathlons...it still resonates with me...because even if you are 'just a runner' the emotions and perservence regardless are the same...whether it be for the 5K casual runner, the 1/2 marathoner, the marathoner or the Ultra marathoner...There is one thing that we all have in common, and also the one thing that we will all face more than once while we are out there...

Do YOU have what it takes???
When the going gets tough???

Watch this YouTube video and try and tell me it doesn't make you just want to crash through barriers, walls and whoever/whatever might try to get in your way...Make sure you turn that volume up REAL LOUD...great lyrics...Love my Eminem!!

The Ironman here is one that I have seen countless times on US network...

My dad has run two Ironman races (both in Lake Placid, 14 hours and 12 hours back to back years) and it definitely keeps things in perspective as I start training for my first sprint triathlon and marathon this year! The dedication to do an Ironman is just so unreal...
