Alea iacta est

Alea iacta est (Latin: "The die has been cast") is a Latin phrase attributed by Suetonius (as iacta alea est [ˈjakta ˈaːlea est]) to Julius Caesar on January 10, 49 BC as he led his army across the River Rubicon in Northern Italy. With this step, he entered Italy at the head of his army in defiance and began his long civil war against Pompey and the Optimates. The phrase is still used today to mean that events have passed a point of no return, that something inevitably will happen. (Source)

Terry is officially signed up for his first ironman distance race.... And since they have a half ironman distance as well, I am now signed up for another half ironman distance... You know, since I'll be there anyways!

I am sure, I will regret this decision at some point a couple of months down the road, but right now, I am just super excited! I am still so high from last Saturday's race, I am all giddy to keep on training and racing throughout the summer. There will be low points for sure, but there are always low points.

Here are some more pictures from the last race:

Looking kind of peed off at the swim exit.

Looking focused on the bike.

Looking happy to finish running! ;-)

Happy weekend everyone!


  1. great action shots! i like the reasoning for signing up for the race as well haha. instead of being there for support / crew-ing for terry... it is his first afterall! haha. (i'm sure he'll be fine)

    1. I figured that I can still support him after I crossed the finish line! ;-)
