140 point holy sh#@!

Congrats to Carolina John on finishing Iron Man Florida yesterday!

I've been fallowing John for a little under a year now, so I think I caught good chunk of his Iron Man training.  I would really like to get into triathlons and (*GASP*) maybe even put Iron Man on my list some day so I've started fallowing quite a few triathlon blogs (Steve In a Speedo, Frayed Laces, and Dangle The Carrot to name a few).  But what I like about Jonh's blog, and you may have heard Running Off The Reeses say the same thing, is that he's just a regular dude who took on this pretty amazing race/challenge.  He has a full time job (just like regular folk), a family (just like regular folk), and at one time he was an out of shape chain smoker (no offense).  It definitely makes me want to be a little less lazy and take on some more challenges.

Most of all, I think I want to do Iron Man so I can get a new tattoo.

  1. Thanks for giving me a few new blogs to stalk :) I've been into the tri world for a few years now, but I decided 2012 was going to be the year of my first HIM! (hence my post on Friday!) I'm always looking for new tri blogs that I can get bits of info from!

  2. John is pretty awesome. I've been following him for a long time and he's a great guy.

  3. Wow.. yeah if I EVER and that's a big EVER did a full, that would be the only tattoo I'd ever get.

  4. I have major respect for people who tri!
