Damn you, Crackhead! Your recent exploits have rekindled my urge to go long. Not that trying to get faster at shorter distances—from 5K to marathon—has lost its charm. Still into that. But it's now pretty clear that I will need to get a 100-miler out of my system at some point. And since I've vowed to train to swim Gibraltar with my friend Steve, it seems like another Ironman (at least) could be part of the picture....


  1. Sign up for Ironman Coeur d'Alene 2011! I'll be there and we can rock that thing together after getting in some rides and runs over the winter, too. Do it.

  2. You know what, Steven? I read your comment just now and said to myself, "OK, I'm going to do it!" Went to Ironman CDA site. And just TODAY they announced it was closed to general entry! I'm not kidding. I was ready to plunk down the $575. Dang!
