How To Approach an Ultra or Ironman

Jordan Rapp quote sums it up!

This Jordan Rapp quote sums it up.
"It's about the process. It doesn't matter what you do tomorrow and it doesn't matter what you did yesterday. It's about today, and making today count. That's especially true in training, but it's the same mentality that I carry into racing. Focus on the task at hand, not on the finish line, or the next part of the race, but what it is that is right there in front of you in the moment."

Beaver- 3:15 1st Male 45-50 and Cowbell Winner! 8th overall /out of 187.

    You will LOVE Bryce Canyon, thought it was much cooler than Zion. Though there are parts of Zion I need to get back to check out.

    Try the Flying Monkey in Springdale, UT, when you're near Zion. They serve brews from the very local Zion Brewing Company.

  5. Thanks,Brownie;
    I'll try to talk the Pylons into The Flying Monkey,I could pick up a growler.Getting tired of the 3.2% beer!
