WHOOP!!!

Way to go lady! You are awesome! You are an IRONMAN!!! Enjoy the glow that you are going to be living in for the next few weeks and give yourself permission to sleep in, eat what ever you want in moderation, and to brag about your accomplishment to anyone who will stand still for more than 5 seconds next to you.

I cannot wait to read your race report!
