Word has it that Brandon Stark and Steve Poirot have both made a committment to compete in next year’s Ford Arizona Ironman 2009. The most recent concluded yesterday, Sunday November 23rd, where Steve spent the day volunteering. Unfortunately I was unable to volunteer even though it was my intention. Alas, I had to hold an open house for my new listing in Phoenix. The open house was successful.
Prior to this year, the Ironman took place in April, which proved to be very hot and very windy. This was the first year in which two events were held in order to recalibrate. The event will continue every year now in November rather than April. Last april I shot a video of my friend Brandon Stark competing. It was quite an event. You can view the Amateur Start on this page as well as Brandon’s Video posted to Facebook.
So, another 364 days from now, Steve and Brandon will embark on yet another torturous day of cardiovascular mayhem, and the great part about it is that somehow I have been recruited to be a training partner! Yeesh. Onward to good health I suppose.
