I was watching ESPN not too long ago and they had an Ironman event on for women. What I found interesting was how many of the women did that for a purpose whether it was to raise money for a family member or friend to essentially a promise to themselves in that they could actually do it. With that in mind, I am not sure I would ever be in the shape that I would need to be do to one of those. I can barely keep a bicycle upright if it is not stationary, not to mention I can’t swim! 😯 That alone would take some sort of feat to accomplish.

Should you have the determination to enter into an Ironman you are in luck as the Ironman 70.3 Branson on September 19, 2009 will be the inaugural race to qualify for the 2010 Foster Grant Ironman World Championship 70.3 in Clearwater, Florida. Considering this is a worldwide race there could be people from all over the world and even some of the popular athletes that you may want to get autographs from. Personally, I’d like to see some football, tennis, and hockey players try this.

When I am not watching the Ironman qualifying round I could go for a walk along the river and lake, tour the museum and maybe even take in a show in any of the 49 live entertainment theaters. Of course I’d also be saving some money by staying at the Hilton Branson Convention Center with a couple of friends. We would make it a great vacation and have as spa day too. I have never been to one but I’m sure I would love it especially with the massages. Probably need a chiropractor verses massage but either one at this point could not hurt me anymore than my back already does. We could book a 2 night stay and get the 3rd night on the hotel as one of their specials which is going on right now. So who is up for a weekend away? I still have about 100 hours to burn before the years up so I won’t lose any of it.
