Macca Mania

Last Friday, our tri team had its annual carb-loading dinner in preparation for the Nautica Malibu Triathlon. This event also serves as a rally for the team and we typically have guest speakers, awards, and recognition.

This year we were lucky to have Chris "Macca" McCormack, the 2007 Ironman World Champion, as our speaker. Not only is he inspirational and fit, he is HOT (and very married - sigh).  After talking to us about his journey to Ironman success and answering questions, he spent a lot of time signing autographs and posing for pictures.  When it was my turn, I asked him to provide me with some inspiration for my upcoming training in hopes of completing the Florida Ironman next year.  Check it out (special thanks to Wedgie for taking the photos)!

Asking Macca for some inspiration

This will be hung where I can see it every day

Me and Macca

We saw Macca again on Sunday -- cheering him on in the transition area as he killed the competition in the triathlon.
