Ironman soon, getting nervous

Brew_TriBrew_Tri Member, Rooster Endurance Member
Doing the Ironman Ireland in about a month. Super nervous that i wont finish. If i can swim 2.89 miles in a pool, bike 100.6 miles and run 14.7 miles do you think i will finish?

I bought aerobars for my canyon EVO 10, should i buy a tri bike too?

    Yes, you will finish. Hold back a bit on the bike and you'll make it. Don't buy a tri bike now. Too late for that, save the money and spend it in the pubs.
    Good luck.

    You'll finish, you'll have a blast afterwards, and you will come back here and convince me to sign up next year.

    Do the Guinness self guided tour. When you are in line for tickets, don't miss the glass viewport embedded in the floor you are standing on. There should be a document displayed beneath your feet that will blow your mind. At the end of the tour, enjoy a pint at the observatory bar. (unless these things have changed). After that, make sure you go to the Brazen Head, 3rd oldest continuously operated pub in the world I think.
    Regarding the IM, make sure you underbike and eat plenty. @wchevron is spot on. You'll finish. Also, perhaps you want to do the tour and pub visit after the IM.

    You’ll finish. Take time to make it a big adventure so you have lots of stories for Sworry Trials and Ode to Laz.

    I have no real concerns about the race other than its gonna suck because im gonna feel like ass the whole time.(this will be the 4th 140.6 sticker on the back of my moms car) yall are too nice.

    @Matt is there a decent line on there you recommend. I went to ireland with my grandfather and parents to find heritage or something a few years back. so i was realatively sober until a night out clubbing and ended up pissing in the corner of the hotel room.

    Also just saw that its pride week in Dublin also. Just gives me a better excuse to wear the budgie smuggler and hand out @AaronWebstey phone number to everyone. Or atleast write it inside one of the irish port a potties.

    I can only imagine your grandfather bemoaning your lack of tolerance and shaming the family name. I've never been, so make it an adventure and try some real local whiskeys. Remember NOT to order any 'Car Bombs', as that's like going to any US bar and ordering a 'School Shooting'.

    Glad you survived. Looked brutal from the videos. You never need to do another one as you’ve delivered the best race photo ever.
