2.4 + 112 + 26.2 = Badass

Since money is tight, it’s a good thing the entry fee to Ford Ironman Arizona costs $550-plus, or else we would win the thing. Swimming 2.4 miles, cycling 112, and running 26.2? So easy. We wouldn’t even have to train, and may have gone out drinking the night before.


Instead, we’ll be watching all sorts of badass men and women torturing their bodies, knowing that we could make mincemeat out of ’em.

Yeah. Right.
