On Monday I'm staring what may be one of the craziest things I have ever attempted. It's called "A Lazy Mans Iron Man", although I am convinced that anyone who attempts this and finishes is no lazy man.
So what is a lazy mans iron man? Well you have one month to complete the following. 2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of riding a bike, and 26.2 miles of running.
I first heard of this about a month ago, one of my brother in laws said he was going to do it. I was impressed but didn't think anything else of it, until about 2 weeks ago. It has been bouncing around in the back of my head. I've been debating with myself if I could actually accomplish it. I am not a fast runner, and I really can't swim. But with that being said, I can drag my body from one end of the pool to the other. It may not be pretty, but I can do it. I don't think anyone will be there from the magazines or newspapers to photograph me attempting this feat. I don't run fast, not yet at least is what I am telling myself. By the time I get to the end of the 26.2 miles, I will be running very fast just to cross the invisible finish line. But now biking, I can do this really well.
So I'm set. Monday July 16th, 2012 you will find me at the gym starting to work my way through a lazy mans iron man. Who knows, maybe one day I will do a real iron man, where there are people there to photograph me. HA
