This ought to be good. Muffucka does his first tri ever and barely doesn't drown and he's an Ironman now. That's why I love you bro. Ain't nothin' stoppin' ya, not even something as stupid as this. I knew you were a different breed of dumb when you did the Udder 60 mile loop in basketball shorts. Good luck man. I'll be rooting for you.

Thanks Ken But you forgot the note that aside from bball shorts, it was on a bike that I picked up the week before the Udder.

Swimming has gotten much easier to say the least and that was my biggest fear, surviving the water. You ask my swim coach and she feared for my life for the little .5 mile LITH Tri swim when I signed up back in January for master swim class.

Thinking I shouldn't tell Ken I have signed up too...... The Trek cycling computer said I did 101 on yesterday's mornings ride, you know that nice cool air makes Ricky go fast

Jon said a Ironman a FULL Ironman Not a half Ken you're right he is a special kind of dumb I wonder what his shopping list from Shimano will look like, he better get together with Beef and combine wish lists!

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Go Jon boy! I wonder about you at times?? You just started training now You should of pulled a Ken, started training in the womb You do realize it is a 26.2 mile run, don't you? That's MILES, not steps, and you can't ride them

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

I plan on signed up for the half in Racine as well. If training for one it is only a little more training for the other.

Rick did you sign up for?

Beef has a wish list too, mine will be more of a need and soon my friend.

The running will come and not worried about that, as will walk if I have to, I just want to finish and that is the goal, FINISH.

Unless I buy a new road bike I think I am ok for now on on tri bike parts. I might still be in the market for a climbing cassette but I think Rick is limited to only the current stuff which is all 11 speed stuff.

I just ordered me a shiny new power meter so I can play a bit with my training over the winter. While Racine is a possibility for me as well my current plan is hi cliffs HIM early next season.

Since I am new to training with power, I didn't want to go nuts and spend a fortune on a spider based system. I ended up ordering the new stages brand crank arm meter and a new ultegra crank to go with it. Hopefully the new toys will keep me motivated.

Jon, have you signed up for Racine HIM yet? I changed my mind on that High Cliffs HIM and registered for Racine today. This is the last day before the first price increase.

I'm in now and wallet is lighter again. My tri bike has shipped too, this sport is expensive.
