Our friend IronBenny [link fixed]was pretty busy today, participating (running? swimming? biking? racing?) in Ironman Arizona. His dear wife has been updating his blog all day. It's all very emotional and amazing. Last I checked, he was 10 miles out from the finish. Really outstanding job. Can't imagine it.
And in other amazing news: I ran 6.5 miles this afternoon. Took a nice fall during the first mile, but luckily it was on the nicely padded dirt berm along the side of the asphalt trail. As I was swan diving, ass over elbow, a lovely biker rode by, saw me, made eye contact, and continued on without so much as a "how's-your-uncle-bob." Nice. But all Bex- and iron-like, I got right back up and soldiered on, bloody knee, ripped tights, and all.
And last, but most assuredly not least, a great big boo-rah (or hoorah, or whatever it is the marines say) to a. maria who completed the St. Louis Half-Marathon today, in a great time, and now is all set for her sub-5 marathon, and thus, is now all iron, too!
Life is good, people!
