A couple hours later I'm starving and HANGRY. But I JUST ate?!!!!!!! Normally I'd wonder if something is wrong with my body, but no. Maybe just my mind - I signed up for a half Ironman! Having done several sprint and a few Olympic triathlons over the last few years, a Half Ironman seemed like a natural progression, you know, just to see what it's like. While chatting with Derek Daniel some time in 2015 he informed me that a couple of his friends were also interested; the Augusta 6 were born!
