Another incarnation of the General Lee
Anyone here ever competed in an Ironman Triathlon? You swim 2.4 miles, bike for 112 miles, and then run a 26-mile marathon. I just interviewed a guy that competed in Germany. He crashed his bike and broke his collarbone 15 miles into the second stage, but got back up and finished the biking. Then he had a volunteer help him put his running shoes on since he could barely move his right arm, and he ran the marathon in 5 hours. He said it was the slowest time he’d ever had, but I was like, it was also the only time you’ve ever run one with a broken bone. He made me feel like a wussy-baby.
I’m so ready for the weekend. I just want to be sitting on the river again. There’s no way we could outdo the last trip, so we’re changing it up and floating the Comal this time. Plus, Ben and Jace are bringing their women, so it won’t just be a big testosterone festival this time around.
