Today is my big day. Today I will swim 2.4 miles in Lake Tahoe, ride my bike 112 miles through some ski resorts, and then run a marathon. I have trained for this and I am ready. Today is a beautiful day and the hills are tipped with snow. You can track me at http://www.ironman.com/triathl...
Sometimes I'm afraid that my subtle Internet humor and mockery/imitation of the media is _too_ subtle and people might think I'm the kind of idiot that I mean to mock. I guess I'll just leave it as an exercise to the reader.
Ironman Tahoe update: Today is the one year anniversary of the passing of my friend Greg, and I find it fitting that today I have passed my fundraising minimum for the Ironman I'm doing in his memory. Thank you everyone for your generous donations! Our dollars are going to a good cause, so hopefully nobody else will have to lose their Greg.
Today was the longest, hardest ride I've ever done: 104 miles, about 8,000 feet of climbing. http://app.strava.com/activit... We're down to the last 5 hard weeks of training and we're not wasting our time.
