As I was finishing the Summits of Bothell, a rider was heading out to do another lap of the course. The ride had pretty much done me in, and I would be hard pressed to do it again. No matter how far you go, someone is always going farther.
As I was riding today, a couple of friends were out doing a triathlon. One was doing an Olympic distance tri in Chicago (.93 mile swim, 25 mile bike, 6.2 mile run). Still another friend was doing the full Ironman distance up in Canada (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run). I still have a tough time wrapping my head around the Ironman distance. Maybe someday I will achieve that level of crazy.
