    Hopefully after the well-deserved beer and a good sleep he'll come detail the experience for us.

    (hint, hint!)

    I hope he's still sleeping,

    I thought it was going to be about one of our brethren who had some sort of consecutive days posting streak going or something -- a la Cal Ripken Jr.

    Alas, there was no celebratory beer. Instead, I settled for a chocolate shake and bacon cheddar potato wedges from Jack in the Box post-race. There were five of us in the Jack on Government Way in CdA: my parents and I and one other Ironman finisher and his friend (he was walking funny, that's how I could tell).

    But wow! Thanks for the support here. I logged on the night before the race during a bout of non-sleep and was shocked to see the thread (thanks so much, Cadet!). Believe me, it crossed my mind during the race that some people were following my progress, which means I have a strong support group from within my profession — or I need to work on my mental focus.

    Seriously, thanks for checking in and at some point this week I'll detail my experience for those who wish to hear or read of it.

    Wait a minute. I thought all sportswriters were fat-ass athletic wannabes? What gives?

    I'm so envious of anyone who can accomplish this....especially in a place as beautiful as Coeur d'Alene. I know it wasn't Serve's first time, the guy really knows his stuff. I wish I had the drive and determination to even dream of trying it.

    How many Ironmans have you done, Serve?

    I've decided to do another couple of sprint-division tris this summer. There are plenty to choose from.

    The thing I hate most about them is the cost. As opposed to a $25 bike race or a $20 5K, a triathlon is usually a $75-100 registration fee and a $40 wetsuit rental plus the travel/lodging the day of/before the race.
