- If you could put a billboard anywhere, where would you put it and what would it say? It is okay to challenge yourself, feel some pain, make yourself feel uncomfortable and out of your comfort zone. You just might surprise yourself with the end result. Where to put it hmmm I would say every Ironman race.
