It's never too late to be what you might have been. --George Eliot

Athena is the Goddess of wisdom and war. In 2005, I declared war on my own bad tendencies: sloth, being fat, compacency, and being too old for adventure. This is the story of how I went from being someone who never stood when she could sit, to being an ultrarunner, marathoner, and triathlete. Along the way I've cried, laughed, fallen, gotten up, lost, won, hallucinated, been dehydrated, DNF'ed, and been DFL.
I also swear. Alot.

Someone to Obsessively Track Today

At Ironman Wisconsin today, we have an aspiring iron couple: Mike and Jwim. I've linked to their blogs, below, if you don't already follow them.

JWim: 2463

Mike: 1304 (Mike, I was surprised to learn on his athlete tracker page, is a retired adult film star. Keep your clothes on today, Mike, or you'll get sunburned!)

Also, if you follow the blog Neoprene Wedgie: Racer 1199.

Let's send out lots of virtual cowbell today, folks!!



  1. They are such an inspirational couple, and I grew up in their town. I have been watching.

  2. I've been a secret admirer of theirs for awhile now and yes, I am obsessively tracking them!

  3. Me too! I've been thinking about them all day. Sitting in church, I was pondering their swim times. I feel like a stalker - but in a good way. Sending cow bell love!!!!

  4. Well, T and I weren't able to track anyone since we were out of town, but (regarding your Thursday 13), T did catch a crayfish by hand while waiting to start the swim of the Harvest Moon Half in Colorado this weekend...Best wishes to your friends, and I hope your training is going well

  5. I was there! Volunteerng at the first bike station - what an awesome experience. AND I SIGNED UP FOR NEXT YEAR!!!!! Yippee
