Thursday Thoughts

I like to reward myself after races. You know, get something for myself that says "good job on getting through the training and having a success race." It doesn't necessarily have to be race related gear, but just something nice for myself. I am already planning on purchasing a finisher's jacket (I have two Boston Marathon jackets, so this is a duh!) and getting a tattoo (I have a tattoo to celebrate my marathons, why would I have one for Ironman?).

So, what should be my reward?

Along with the jacket and tat, I suggest a bike jersey, so on group rides you can show off how hardcore you are.

I think I had many rewards post-Ironman but among them, the ones I enjoyed were (a) a blizzard and corndog at DQ, (b) the $500 in finishers gear my husband bought me the morning after the race while I stayed in bed, and (c) the fancy spa day I did the morning after.

I don't know if they are still making it or not, but for last year, Ford had the Ironman Explorer. I personally thought the Ironman logo was too subtle on it, but it was still very cool and I would want that.
