I spent most of the aftenoon/early evening watching finishers at IronMan Florida. That sounds lame, but there was a house full of 13yr old girls here - that requires a certain level of endurance in its own right.
It is kind of funny - I went on what turned into a 20mi bike ride that wiped me out all day...and ended up sitting on my rear watching others go the distance. But it did motivate me. I really want to find a way to do that polar bear triathlon. And get serious about my race calendar. I need to put the goal I'm working toward as being a half iron distance event in 2008.
Now if I can just make it up those darn hills tomorrow morning on my bike....
