On your mark, get set . . . go!

Well, it's official. Kirb and I both signed up for the "Lazyman Triathlon" at the Y. It's an entire Ironman Triathlon, but instead of doing it all in one day, {like the crazy ambitious, in seriously amazing shape people with insane amounts of energy and endurance . . . and who I also must add, often poop their pants as they go} you get 5 weeks to finish {and I promise not to poop my pants!}. So between today and the 9th of August we have to {each} swim 2.5 miles, bike 112 miles and run {walk, more likely} 26.2 miles. I, for one, need a little incentive so I thought it would be fun to sign up. Plus, I'm kind of a "responsible" type, so if I said I would do it then, by george, I'm gonna get it done. Also, the $10 I had to pay to register is also a big incentive for me, not to mention the t-shirt I'll get when I finish!

Kirb put in 17 miles on the stationary bike this morning, I went later in the afternoon and logged 7.7 miles. So, we're on our way. I'll update once in a while and let you know how we're doing. I'm excited!
