Sweet Baboo has requested that I state for the record that he did not talk me into this. (He only helped me with the rationalizations after I signed up.)
Rationalization numero 1: What the hell, I'm going to be there anyway, right? I might as well give myself something to do while he and the rest of the Outlaws and blogger community are running amok doing their ironman.
Rationalization numero 2: If I do Ironman Louisville and have a sucky time, I'm going to want another crack at it.
Rationalization numero 3: If I do Ironman Louisville and have a great time, I'm gonna want to do it ragain.
Rationalization numero 4: I'll have ample opportunity to learn how to spell Cour C'Arlene properly.
