It's almost a year away, but it's already occupying far too large of a corner in my brain. Yes, I've got the Iron Sickness, caused by signing on the M-dotted line, committing yourself to the craziness that is the Ironman. That causes you to start thinking about training for Ironman, reading books about the Ironman, perusing websites and blogs, visiting forums and reading race reports and agonizing over the tiniest details that you don't really need to settle for at least, oh, five or six months.
Oh well, at least Borders has a going out of business sale. That allowed me to justify spending some $$$ on Macca's book "I'm Here To Win", (of course after buying some homeschooling-ish books for the kids, ostensibly what I wandered into Borders to do) and this has at least diverted me from reading through various training plans online, for awhile.
