Moms Know Best

My dear mother, Bless Her Heart, really has no idea what an Ironman is. She went into New York City to watch me do the Olympic Tri there and was overwhelmed by everything. The Ironman is beyond her.

I was talking to her on the phone today and she asked me "tell me again, how far do you have to go?" I told her "Swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, run 26.2 miles." Then she asked "and how long is all that going to take you?" I said "well I should do it in about 15 hours."

She gasped.

"15 hours?! That's two night's worth of sleep!"

Leave it to Mom to put everything in perspective.
