Oh, you may notice a certain little Tigger sticking out of the back of my top. Well, he's going to be along for the ride this year. His bigger brother will also be with me for the last portion of the run and we'll cross the finish line together.
This is to honour my dear friend 'Tigger' who passed away this year after one heck of a battle with cancer. Her and I crossed the finish line of Ironman Canada hand in hand in 2007. It was our first Ironman and I could not have made it without her.
Recently I read her race report from 2007. She said that after the race she swore she'd never do another, but by Tuesday she figured that 2009 would be a good year to give it a go again. So this race is for you Tigger. You will be racing it again with me, in spirit and in my heart. I promise you, we'll have a blast!
Peace out my gloriferous friends.
