I'm home now and it's back to work tomorrow.

And I've finally realized that I truly am an idiot. Or there's something seriously wrong with me. Yep, it's pretty much confirmed. In the last week, the glow of finishing Kona has started to dim and I've been feeling like I should have done better. See, told you I'm an idiot. I don't know why it is that I have trouble being satisfied with my results. Just a few short years ago I hadn't even done a single triathlon. Forget the idea of doing an IronMan.....let alone Kona! And now, I successfully finished a marathon, and 2 Iron races in one of them the world championship. That sure seems like a big accomplishment. So what is wrong with me that I can't just enjoy the success of that? *sigh*.....I guess that's something to work towards.

I'll put together a race summary soon........maybe even with pics. :)

You are suffering from a very familiar syndrome. The "I should have done better" syndrome. It is a common one in my household. Even when I have done my best I still feel that I should have done better.
As you wrote in your have done 2 IM's and a marathon and a flying pig within a year! In my book that's damn fantastic. I'm not just saying this because you are my daughter(well maybe a little). You are my hero because with all the adversities you had through the years you have overcome them and have gone up the ladder to success. I am also delighted to tell anyone who cares to listen about the event. So feel proud that you finished when pro's have just quit. A true pro should have had the wherewithall to gut it out. I love you and just take it slowly and no matter what...YOU ARE AN IRON MAN!!!!!!!!!
